Event Description

America’s National Ballet Company® gives the Midwest premiere of Alexei Ratmansky’s Whipped Cream on the Auditorium Theatre’s landmark stage. Called “a bewitching success” by the Los Angeles Times and “visually enchanting” by The Wall Street Journal, this whimsical story ballet follows a young boy after he overindulges in sweets and falls into a sugar-induced delirium! Set to a 1924 score by Richard Strauss – performed live by the Chicago Philharmonic – and featuring colorful costumes and jubilant sets by pop-surrealist artist Mark Ryden, Whipped Cream is “a candyland triumph” (The New York Times) fit for the whole family!
