American Ballet Theatre: Whipped Cream at The Met

The Metropolitan Opera

Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, 30 Lincoln Center Plaza, New York, NY 10023

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 him escape from his attending physician, the boy dreams of his triumphant rescue by Princess Praline and her court, including Princess Tea Flower and Prince Coffee, as well as marching Marzipan, with a festive celebration in conclusion. As light as meringue, Richard Strauss’s score is the perfect inspiration for this all-new production destined to delight ballet fans of all ages. —ABT
