Whipped Cream Ballet Spreads Through California

Posted By: Nneka Opene | Filed under: General | Mar 14, 2017

Smooth, gratifying and a delight to the senses is just how one might describe eating whip cream or also watching Whip Cream the ballet as it makes its way to Orange County, California. A light-hearted, whimsical work based on Schlagobers two-act ballet with libretto, Whipped Cream brings pure satisfaction to those who treat themselves to its gratifying smoothness. First performed at the Vienna state opera in 1924, Whipped Cream makes its way to Costa Mesa’s Segerstrom Center for the Arts, from March 15 – March 19th, 2017.

The unique story of a young boy who  falls into a delirious state after overindulging at a Viennese pastry shop, and dreams about being rescued from his attending doctor. The heroins/heroic characters who come to his rescue are Princess Tea Flower, Prince Coffee, Marching Marzipan and Princess Praline and her court. The boy’s rescue concludes with a festive celebration scored by the zany sounds of Richard Strauss, and performed by the Pacific Symphony.

With sets and costumes by eccentric pop-surrealist Mark Ryden, and quirky choreography by American Ballet Theater Artist Alexei Ratmansky to match, this American Ballet Theatre production will take spectators on a fun, wild, light-hearted ride through a sugar coated fantasy land of wonder and surrealism.


Tickets to ABT’s Whipped Cream are available online at www.SCFTA.org. A special free preview talk will be given one hour before each performance.
