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.
