Today is your last chance to witness George Balanchine’s Jewels😍

💍One lucky audience member will walk away with a piece of stunning VanBrock Private Jewelers jewelry after each performance.

💎 Presented by VanBrock Private Jewelers with special support of the Estelle S. and Robert A. Long Ellis Foundation, Wendy & George Powell Family Fund, and the Richard J. Stern Foundation for the Arts (Commerce Bank, Trustee).

🎟️Tickets are available at KCBALLET.ORG.

‼️🚧Construction have closed the east two lanes of Broadway to replace water mains. This will definitely cause traffic congestion on Broadway (and probably the northbound I-35 Broadway Exit). Alternate routes approaching the Kauffman Center and Arts District Garage from the south or east are recommended.
