Clip: Season 2017 Episode 104 | 9m 18s

NYC-ARTS visits the American Ballet Theatre as a new production, titled “Whipped Cream,” has its New York premiere. Set to music by Richard Strauss, the work originally premiered in 1924. Alexei Ratmansky’s vision of "Whipped Cream" came to life after he discovered the work of pop surrealist artist Mark Ryden. The two worked closely together on this highly stylized production.
