Are you ready for a refreshing LIVE dance experience? We are! This May, Kansas City Ballet welcomes you to Starlight Theatre for a 70-minute performance uniquely designed to tantalize your sense of adventure. All ballets on the program are brand new works by extraordinarily gifted choreographers, including KC Ballet’s Artistic Director Devon Carney, KC Ballet Masters Kristi Capps and Parrish Maynard, Principal Dancer at Houston Ballet Melody Mennite, KCB II Manager Christopher Ruud, and KC Ballet Company dancers Emily Mistretta and James Kirby Rogers. These outdoor performances will be an exciting opportunity to experience live ballet on stage once again.
Kansas City Ballet would like to extend a very special offer to our community in celebration of essential and front-line workers with a FREE performance Saturday, May 22 at 2 p.m. as our way of thanking them for all their vital work this past year. Reservations are required and can be made below or by calling the Starlight Theatre Box Office at (816) 363-7827. FREE parking for the matinee performance is available.
Masks, social distancing, and safety protocols will be required at all performances.
These performances are sponsored in part by BOK Financial, Missouri Arts Council, Muriel McBrien Kauffman Foundation, National Endowment of the Arts, Richard J. Stern Foundation for the Arts.
