Perhaps the most recognized ballet of all time, Swan Lake makes its highly-anticipated return to Kansas City Ballet after breaking box office records in 2016. This immortal love story involves a wicked sorcerer who captures the beautiful Princess Odette and turns her into a swan. His evil spell can only be broken when a young prince pledges his love and marries her. Should he betray her, she will remain a swan forever.

Choreography: Devon Carney after Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov 
Music: Peter I. Tchaikovsky

Music performed by Kansas City Symphony

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.
