Whipped Cream


Choreography by Alexei Ratmansky
Libretto and Score by Richard Strauss
Sets and Costumes by Mark Ryden
Lighting by Brad Fields

From the delicious imaginations of Artist in Residence Alexei Ratmansky and pop surrealist visionary Mark Ryden comes a second helping of this dollop of delightful whimsy. In this fantastical confection, a young boy overindulges at a Viennese pastry shop and falls into a delirium. To escape his attending physician, the boy dreams of his triumphant rescue by Princess Praline and her court, Princess Tea Flower, Prince Coffee, and the marching Marzipan. A delight for ballet fans of all ages.
