At the Kauffman Center grand opening in September 2011, Julia Irene Kauffman said, “At the heart of the Kauffman Center is a living tradition of extraordinary and diverse performing arts experiences. Ten years of collective research, planning, and design have brought into focus the mission of the Kauffman Center. This is a building for today and for generations to come.”
The Kauffman Center, home to resident organizations the Kansas City Ballet, Lyric Opera, Kansas City Symphony, and other innovative programming, embraces a variety of audiences with different tastes, interests and passions. At the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, everyone can have an opportunity to experience excellence.
The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts’ vision is to enrich the lives of everyone in our community through extraordinary and diverse performing arts experiences.
