BWW Review: Alexei Ratmansky's WHIPPED CREAM at ABTBWW Review: Alexei Ratmansky's WHIPPED CREAM at ABT

I had a difficult time listening to the music-it didn't gel, nor did it leave any imprint on my mind. I suppose there was a reason for it not having many recordings-compare this with Rosenkavalier.
