KC Ballet's 61st Season Concludes May 10-19

The 2018-2019 Season will conclude with works by three of America's most recognized and acclaimed choreographers brought together on stage for the THARP / PARSONS / FORSYTHE program May 10-19 at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. With more than 160 choreographed dances to her name, Twyla Tharp is a legendary master of her craft and her In the Upper Room is a tour-de-force of athleticism, built on a pulsating score by Philip Glass. William Forsythe's contemporary masterpiece, In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated, is a high-voltage thrill ride that changed dance forever and became one of his signature works. Kansas City native, David Parsons, founded Parsons Dance and quickly was hailed as a master of contemporary dance. His WORLD PREMIERE, A Play for Love, delivers a fanciful romp derived from Shakespeare's most celebrated comedic characters.
