It’s been a little over a year since the Kansas City Ballet and Starlight both temporarily shut their doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, the companies are back and ready to hit the big stage for their first in-person show since 2020—and for the first time together. This exciting production is the first time the Kansas City Ballet has performed at Starlight’s historic venue in Swope Park, and audiences won’t want to miss it. With 70-minutes of new performances uniquely designed to tantalize your sense of adventure, the KC Ballet is sure to excite guests under the stars.
KC Ballet at Starlight was created by an extraordinary gifted team of choreographers to include the KC Ballet’s Artistic Director, Devon Carney, KC Ballet Masters Kristi Capps and Parrish Maynard, Principal Dancer at Houston Ballet Melody Mennite, Second Company Manager and Ballet Master Christopher Rudd, and KC Ballet Company Dancers Emily Mistretta and James Kirby Rogers.
