KC Ballet "Midsummer Night's Dream" review by Paul Horsley

The Kansas City Ballet’s current season is to some extent a tribute to its visionary artistic director, William Whitener, who bids farewell to the company this spring after 17 years here. The winter program that opened on March 15th at the Muriel Kauffman Theatre highlighted two important aspects of William’s legacy that will continue to echo for years to come: his longtime devotion to living choreographers and especially prominent women in the field, and his dedication to creating new works of his own for the company, which were always nicely tailored to fit a company of KCB’s size (currently 28 dancers).
