ABOUT THE SHOW

A hugely popular and insatiably indulgent celebration of life and love. Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana is a pulsating choral work that provides an incredible landscape for choreographed spectacle. Most have experienced Carmina Burana in choral presentation, but few have seen it as it was originally imagined.

Dance Speaks: Carmina Burana

Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2019

As part of Kansas City Ballet’s commitment to engage the community-at-large, we offer a unique educational series titled DANCE SPEAKS, held at various venues around the community. Tickets are required for this event and will go on sale August 2019.

Learn how music, special effects and costumes all make magic on stage by attending a pre-curtain talk, the Belger Footnote Series, hosted by Artistic Director Devon Carney.

Dancers, choreographers, musicians, and special guests offer audience members an insider’s view on the story line, choreography, history, costumes, and music prior to each repertory performance. These informal discussions are free for all ticket holders. They are held at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts one hour prior to curtain for Kansas City Ballet repertory shows.
