Kansas City Ballet presents Swan Lake, with choreography by KCB’s Artistic Director Devon Carney after Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov and the mesmerizing score of Peter I. Tchaikovsky. This will be the first full-length presentation of Swan Lake in Kansas City Ballet’s history. Artistic Director Devon Carney said,
“I am so thrilled to see our dancers get the opportunity to perform this defining work for our audiences. To this day, the dual role of Odette/Odile is world famous and a major milestone in a dancer’s career. Additionally, the group of swans that compromise the corps de ballet must breathe and move almost as one—the quintessential example of precision and timing. It isn’t any wonder this spectacular ballet has withstood the great test of time, and it’s an honor and a privilege to present it to our Kansas City community on the Kauffman Center’s stage!”
Performances will run Feb 19-28 at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. To buy tickets, CLICK HERE!
