Mark Ryden and Alexei Ratmansky collaborated on Whipped Cream

Whipped Cream (Schlagobers am Deutsch) is an almost century old ballet. (And whàt a fine name for a ballet!!!) It is set to music from Richard Strauss and was first performed in 1924. Choreographer Alexei Ratmansky and artist Mark Ryden collaborated on the newest version; which premiered in California in March 2017. We, at Mimi Berlin, like the work of Mark Ryden very much. The costumes and decor he designed for this ballet aren’t disappointing either, au contraire! They are G R E A T! We do hope the American Ballet Theatre planned an international tour to Europe!

“The two-act confection, called “Whipped Cream,” is a story about a young boy who overindulges at a Vienna pastry shop and falls into a surreal delirium.” (via/read more at marcryden.com)

The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin

The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin

A tale written by Beatix Potter and ‘told’ by the Royal Ballet. Watching this clip is an easy-going, friendly way to start the day (in our opinion) Have a nice one! xoxo Mimi

“Tales of Beatrix Potter was created in 1971 for a film, bringing alive with astonishing accuracy the famous images and stories of Beatrix Potter. The dancers of The Royal Ballet are dressed and masked to look just as we know them from the illustrations.” (via and see more youtube Royal Opera House))
