For more than 100 years, Swan Lake has enchanted audiences with its imaginative characters and timeless love story. In 2016, Swan Lake broke Kansas City Ballet box office records. Now it’s back for a highly-anticipated run of performances Feb. 14-23 at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.
Kansas City Ballet’s Swan Lake was choreographed by Artistic Director Devon Carney after Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov and is set to an incredible Tchaikovsky score performed by Kansas City Symphony.
“I’m thrilled to see our dancers get another opportunity to perform this defining work for our audiences,” Kansas City Ballet Artistic Director and choreographer Devon Carney said. “The group of swans comprising 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 test of time, and it’s an honor and a privilege to present it again.”
Find out what goes on before the ballet takes the stage with rehearsal footage of the company in their studios at KC Ballet’s Todd Bolender Center for Dance & Creativity.
