Ballet: George Balanchine / Jewels

Off to my first evening at the KC Ballet tonight – My instincts told me it would be a good one. And I was right!

The show is George Balanchine’s Jewels. I’m no ballet genius but I do know and love the composers whose works make up the score. The music was provided by Fauré, Stravinsky, and Tchaikovsky. Since I could be happy just listening to a KC Symphony performance of those composers, disappointment with the event was an impossibility.
