The Diamond Ball – Private Dinner

Was it Romeo and Juliet’s Verona? No, it was the Muriel Kauffman Theatre stage at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, with decor by Larry Wheeler and Craig Sole. Patrons of the 50th Annual Ballet Gala enjoyed a delicious, four-course meal in this delightful setting during The Diamond Ball’s Private Dinner on October 17th. Gigi Rose is the president of the Kansas City Ballet Guild, and Melanie and Mike Fenske served as Ball chairmen.
