The Kansas City Ballet 2024-2025 season features the return of fan favorites such as Septime Webre’s ALICE (in Wonderland), the annual Nutcracker (Devon Carney) and Lila York’s Celts, the Kansas City premiere of Anna-Marie Holmes’ Don Quixote, and several world premieres.

Webre’s ALICE (in wonderland) is a modern reimagining of the beloved classic Lewis Carroll’s iconic characters, while Anna-Marie Holmes’ rendition of Don Quixote is a romantic ballet extravaganza that brings to life the beloved story by Miguel de Cervantes.

Celts appears on the closing program, “Fusion” along with Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Tulips and lobster (inspired by the rich and evocative paintings of the Old Dutch masters from the 17th century), William Forsythe’s In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated (a groundbreaking contemporary ballet choreographed in 19897), and a world premiere by Kansas City choreographer Caroline Dahm.

The annual “New Moves” program returns, showcasing contemporary ballet in an intimate setting a the company’s Todd Bolender Center for Dance & Creativity.

“I’m thrilled to be presenting such an incredible lineup of world-renowned works and newly-minted creations to our devoted audiences in my twelfth season as Kansas City Ballet’s artistic director.”
