Director’s Choice Highlights

Kansas City Ballet closes it’s 59th season this coming weekend May, 19-21 at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.

Don’t miss the chance to see three incredible works by masters of ballet: Jerome Robbins, Val Caniparoli, and George Balanchine.

Youth and whimsy take center stage in the show’s opener, Interplay, by Jerome Robbins and set to music from Morton Gould.

Complex emotions rule during Val Caniparoli’s The Lottery based on the shocking short story by Shirley Jackson and performed to Robert Moran’s incredible score.

Grandeur reigns supreme in Balanchine’s Theme and Variations which is expertly set to Tchaikovsky’s powerful score.
