Starlight Theatre in Swope Park
Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of 19th century Europe through the eyes of Claude Monet and the Impressionist painters who immortalized them. Monet & Friends Alive is a multi-sensory experience to entertain the whole family.
Presented by Starlight in partnership with The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, this is unlike any other ordinary art exhibition. The Impressionists’ works have been displayed and enjoyed around the world for almost two-hundred years—but never like this. Created and produced by Grande Experiences, Monet & Friends Alive gives you the unique opportunity to truly indulge your senses. Traditions of tiptoeing through silent galleries and viewing paintings from afar in quiet contemplation are forgotten as visitors find themselves interacting with art in ways they never imagined. Breath-taking paintings are projected on an enormous scale, illuminating the bold brushstrokes of Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, and many more. In a rich, dynamic display of light, color, sound and fragrance, the masterpieces of the Impressionists come to life. Adults and children delight in the super-scale show, viewing artworks from new angles and discovering unique perspectives. But don’t just take their word for it: experience it for yourself!
