The evening featured ABT’s dancers in the New York premiere of Whipped Cream. Choreographed by ABT artist-in-residence Alexei Ratmansky, Whipped Cream is set in Vienna, Austria to a score by Richard Strauss, with costumes and sets designed by pop surrealist Mark Ryden.
Co-Chairs for the evening included Diane Kruger, Katie Holmes, Kate Bosworth, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Sofia Coppola, Amy Astley, Giovanna Battaglia, Anh Duong, Calvin Klein, Allison Sarofim, Sarah Arison, Elettra Wiedemann and Beth Chartoff Spector.
Caroline Kennedy served as Honorary Chair of ABT Spring Gala. Emily and Len Blavatnik, Lisa and Dick Cashin, Pamela Ford, Elizabeth Segerstrom, Toni and Martin Sosnoff, Sutton Stracke and Nadja Swarovski served as Chairs for the evening.
A Gala dinner on The Promenade of the David H. Koch Theater immediately followed the performance.
