Why See American Ballet Theatre - Whipped Cream?
Back for 2019!
Specially created for American Ballet Theatre by resident artist Alexei Ratmansky, Whipped Cream makes its deliciously sweet mark once more! Set to the music of Richard Strauss' Schlagobers (originally created in 1924 for the Vienna State Opera), and designed by Mark Ryden. A must-see for dances fans with a sweet tooth who didn't quite get their fill of the Nutcracker ballet, this candied confection will put a spring in your step.
Pop Surrealist artist Mark Ryden takes us into a world of over-indulgence, as a young boy starts fantasising about a dream world following a surfeit of cake whilst visiting a Viennese patisserie. Whilst his physician prescribes drastic measures to snap him out of his reverie, the boy escapes with the help of the lovely Princess Praline and her court, together with Princess Tea Flower, Prince Coffee and marching Marzipan, all winding up in a truly colorful and sweet celebration.
Opening night: 24 May 2019

Expertly acted, pleasingly sung, and often visually splendid, it makes a good faith attempt to honor the show's history and intentions while also acknowledging the charged sexual politics of the moment
Despite the star-making potential of her part, many actresses would have shied away from the daunting task of stepping into Julia Roberts' shoes. However, Barks' determination to make the role her own shines through at every moment.
