About the Kennedy Center

The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, overlooking the Potomac River in Washington, D.C., is America’s living memorial to President Kennedy. Under the guidance of Chairman David M. Rubenstein, and President Deborah F. Rutter, the nine theaters and stages of the nation’s busiest performing arts facility attract audiences totaling 2 million; Center-related touring productions, television and radio broadcasts welcome 40 million more. To further serve as the Nation’s performing arts center, the Center announced in 2013 a significant expansion project to be constructed south of the existing facility. The Kennedy Center Expansion is intended to be a place where visitors can more actively engage with artists, while also creating new and much-needed rehearsal, education and flexible indoor and outdoor event and performance spaces.

Cincinnati Ballet thanks our generous hometown supporters including George and Kathy Wilkinson and many others, all of whom have made this tour possible.
