The Harriman-Jewell Series will present Stars of American Ballet at 7:30 p.m. Friday, October 23, in Muriel Kauffman Theatre, Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts (1601 Broadway), Kansas City, Mo. The performance will be the ensemble's Kansas City debut.

A showcase ensemble that draws principal dancers from New York City Ballet and other elite American companies, Stars of American Ballet will dance an audience-pleasing program that includes Tarantella by Balanchine (music by Gottschalk), Two Hearts pas de deux excerpted from Two Hearts by Millipied (music by Muhly), Liturgy by Wheeldon (music by Pärt), The Man I Love pas de deux from Who Cares? by Balanchine (music by Gershwin), Piazzolla Tango by Gallardo (music by Piazzolla), Mercurial Manoeuvres by Wheeldon (music by Shostakovich), and will feature Fancy Free by Robbins (music by Bernstein), the 1940s sailors-on-leave favorite the New York Times described as a classic that “both captures the time of its creation and stands as timeless.”

The Stars of American Ballet ensemble assembled for this Harriman-Jewell Series presentation are all from New York City Ballet, including NYCB principal dancers Megan Fairchild (who just returned from starring in Broadway’s On the Town), Teresa Reichlen, Tiler Peck, Ask la Cour, Tyler Angle, Amar Ramasar, and Daniel Ulbricht; soloist dancer Georgina Pazcoguin; and corps dancer Sara Adams. The ensemble was founded and is directed by New York City Ballet principal dancer Daniel Ulbricht, who works alongside Executive Director Andrew Robertson.
