Pencil in an evening with the American Ballet Theatre, a pink-themed picnic and all the cheese you can eat at the cheesiest of invitationals.
Proving ballet can be a sweet treat, ABT opens its spring season with a second run of Alexei Ratmansky's Whipped Cream, which follows a boy who goes overboard at a Viennese pastry shop and enters a state of sugary delirium. Prefer your ballet with a side of chivalry? Then reserve your seat for the company's rendition of Don Quixote.
