KC Ballet : Bliss Point

May 12 7:00pm



Kansas City Ballet presents Bliss Point – find the greatest pleasures with ballets by Mark Morris, Jiří Kylián, and Alexander Ekman at the Kauffman Center May 12-21, 2023.

Mark Morris’ hip Sandpaper is an inventive pop ballet that teases your imagination with wit, humor, and dazzling movement.

Petite Mort, the tantalizing contemporary ballet by Jiří Kylián, returns to Kansas City Ballet and this popular masterpiece remains an absolute “must-see.”

Alexander Ekman’s gleeful ballet, Cacti, pokes fun at the pretentious and often hilarious way that people interpret art. Don’t ask, “what does it all mean?” Experience it. Enjoy it.


There’s always something to see or do in Kansas City – the city we love –  we would like to use our Events page to show some love and highlight some of those Local Happenings. Get out there and check out a show, see an exhibit or catch a game. These are the events that we’ll be attending and hope to see you there!
