2018-2019 Season


May 10-19, 2019
Muriel Kauffman Theatre | Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts

This is Kansas City Ballet’s must-see dance event of the season with the works of three of America’s most recognized and acclaimed choreographers brought together on stage at the Kauffman Center! Twyla Tharp’s In the Upper Room is a tour-de-force of athleticism, built on a pulsating score by Philip Glass. William Forsythe’s contemporary masterpiece, In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated, is a high-voltage thrill ride that changed dance forever and became one of Forsythe’s signature works. Kansas City native, David Parsons founded Parsons Dance and quickly was hailed as a master of contemporary dance. He returns to KC with a world premiere ballet just for you.
