Kansas City Ballet lay on an exquisitely romantic treat for Valentine's day as they revive Val Caniparioli's gorgeously devastating adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' tragic love story. Second only to Romeo and Juliet, the timeless story of country boy Armand and his love for the sophisticated yet spoiled courtesan Marguerite has enjoyed many translations, notably into opera by Verdi (La Traviata) and film by Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!) Now experience the ravishing beauty and bittersweet denouement live on stage, set to the unforgettable music of Frederic Chopin.

Kansas City Symphony - The Music of Michael Jackson

Helzberg Hall

Until February 23, 2019

Michael Jackson needs no introduction. The rightful King Of Pop has left an indelible mark on pop music and culture, a relationship with the world that began in 1964 when he made his debut with the Jackson 5. From his auspicious Motown beginnings, the icon morphed into a pop juggernaut with a solo career so prolific it garnered 13 Grammys and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, as well as immortalised him as one of the best-selling performers of all time. Celebrate his enduring legacy with the Kansas City Symphony, special guest director Brent Havens and guest vocalist James Delisco as they chart his hits from the 70s through to the early 2000s.

Part of the sitar-playing Shankar dynasty, Anoushka follows in her father Ravi's footsteps with her unique take on the Indian instrument. With five Grammy nominations already under her belt, she first came to notable attention at the tender age of 20 with her first album, making her the first Indian female and youngest-ever Grammy nominee in the World Music category. This year sees her tour India with her Home album, and the States with her newest LP, Land of Gold.

Easily the most recognizable and crowd-pleasing piece in all the classical repertoire, Carl Orff's powerhouse masterpiece, with its famed O Fortuna! chorus, is at its most essential and vivid when performed in the concert hall. A challenge more than befitting of the Kansas City Symphony!
