The Kansas City Ballet recently performed the World Premiere of Tom Sawyer at the new Kauffman Center of Performing Arts. The KC Ballet performed in the Muriel Kauffman Theater. The ballet prepared and rehearsed for the performance in the new Todd Bolender Center for Dance and Creativity at Union Station. It was recently transformed from an abandoned coal-fired power power plant to a new, beautiful home for the Kansas City Ballet.
We attended the Saturday night performance of Tom Sawyer, and found it delightful! It is appropriate the ballet would pay homage to Missouri born, Mark Twain and his character, Tom Sawyer in its premier performance in the new Muriel Kauffman Theatre. What a beautiful way to honor the new performing arts center by honoring a native Missourian. It was a historic moment.
Hats off to the Kansas City Ballet and the new Muriel Kauffman Theater at the Kaufman Center of Performing Arts.
