For the first time ever, the Kansas City Ballet will perform at Starlight on May 21 & 22 at 8 p.m. The all-new, 70-minute performance promises to tantalize. These outdoor performances—created by extraordinarily gifted local choreographers—will be an exciting opportunity to experience live ballet on stage once again.

In addition to public performances, the Kansas City Ballet will also host a free community performance in celebration of essential and front-line workers on Saturday, May 22 at 2 p.m. It’s the organization’s way of thanking them for all their vital work this past year. Reservations are required and can be made at kcstarlight.com/ or https://kcballet.org/.
