A dollop of delightful whimsy, this thoroughly inventive full-length premiere springs from the imagination of Artist in Residence Alexei Ratmansky and pop surrealist visionary, Mark Ryden. In this fantastical confection, a young boy overindulges at a Viennese pastry shop, and falls into a delirium. To help the boy escape from his attending physician, the boy dreams of his triumphant rescue by Princess Praline and her court, replete with Princess Tea Flower, Prince Coffee as well as marching Marzipan, concluding in a festive celebration! As light as meringue, Richard Straussí score is the perfect inspiration for this all-new production destined to delight ballet fans of all ages.
