I photographed the grand opening of The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City, Missouri on September 18, 2011. The 285,000-square-foot facility houses two performance venues: the 1,800-seat Muriel Kauffman Theatre and the 1,600-seat Helzberg Hall. It is the new home of the Kansas City Symphony, the Lyric Opera of Kansas City and the Kansas City Ballet.
