   Dressed to the nines and dripping in glamour, our young cosmopolitans have arrived fashionably early to the anniversary gala at the Kauffman Center for Performing Arts, where they are treated to a VIP backstage tour and private concerts by Jeffrey Kail, principal bassist for the Kansas City Symphony; ballerina Lilliana Hagerman of the Kansas City Ballet, performing "The Dying Swan" in Swan Lake; and mezzo-soprano Rebecca Mann-Allen of the Lyric Opera of Kansas City performing the role of Carmen. Both Swan Lake and Carmen are part of the Kauffman’s 2015-16 cultural season.

   Celebrating its fifth spectacular season, Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts is the performance home of the Kansas City Ballet, Kansas City Symphony and Lyric Opera of Kansas City and other innovative programming that embraces a variety of audiences with different tastes, interests and passions.
