KC cafeteria is horrible. Cafeteria with real restaurant $prices. Go over to Watergate and find pizza/salad place or hotel rest.for a bit more upscale. KC should be ashamed of itself for their "offerings".

Loved it! The best ballet I've seen outside of the Nutcracker. ABT is fantastic and highly recommend that you see them whenever possible. The costumes were gorgeous, there's a large cast, and the effect/stage were great!

Terrific performance; loved seeing The Moors Pavane again (seen first at the KC with ABT almost 40 years ago!) and the new ballet by the company's artistic director. Great all around.
