The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, a new multi-venue center for music, opera, theater and dance designed by Moshe Safdie opened in Kansas City on September 16, 2011. The Kauffman Center seeks to enrich the lives of all Greater Kansas City residents by presenting vibrant and diverse performances, educational programming and creating a tradition of the performing arts as a catalyst for Kansas City’s civic economic and educational vitality. Three of the region’s leading performing arts organizations – Kansas City Ballet, Kansas City Symphony and Lyric Opera of Kansas City – are in residence at the Kauffman Center. The Kauffman Center’s two performance venues, the 1,800-seat Muriel Kauffman Theatre and the 1,600-seat Helzberg Hall, offer audiences engaging and intimate experiences, while at the same time providing resident companies with enhanced performance capabilities. Serving as a cultural cornerstone for Kansas City’s dynamic downtown, the Kauffman Center brings a new spotlight to the region’s performing arts community while simultaneously attracting some of the world’s most talented performers and entertainers, further establishing Kansas City as a major cultural destination. More information on the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts is available at www.kauffmancenter.org.
