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".

The dancers from Japan and Russia were wonderful. I would love to see the Japanese company do a whole program.

Description

Following the success of its inaugural engagements in 2006 and 2008, Protégés III showcases rising stars from some of the world’s greatest ballet academies. The programs highlight the academies’ different styles of training and provide a glimpse into the future of ballet with performances by students from the Bolshoi Ballet Academy, Julio Bocca Foundation Ballet Argentino School of the Arts, The Royal Danish Ballet School, and Tokyo’s New National Theatre Ballet School. The Protégés series provides a unique chance to witness the energy and technical training of a new generation of dancers at the schools that are creating and placing rising stars in ballet companies around the world. Performances will be accompanied by the Opera House Orchestra.
