Whipped Cream

For the past year, Mark Ryden has been working on the costumes and sets for an exciting new ballet by world renowned choreographer Alexei Ratmansky for the American Ballet Theatre. The two-act confection, called “Whipped Cream,” is story about a young boy who overindulges at a Vienna pastry shop and falls into a surreal delirium. With libretto and music by Richard Strauss, the ballet, originally titled “Schlagobers,” was first performed by the Vienna State Opera in 1924.

“Whipped Cream" will premier at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa, CA this March 15, 2017 and later travel to the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City on May 22, 2017.
