2016 SEASON

 


OPERAS & MUSICALS




RAGTIME |

By Terrence McNally, Stephen Flaherty, and Lynn Ahrens

Meet Tateh, a European Jewish immigrant; Coalhouse, an African American musician; and Mother, a White family matriarch, as they navigate life in America at the turn of the 20th Century. Exploring themes of immigration, race, and the American melting pot, Tony Award-winning Ragtime is a modern musical theater masterpiece.
 

SHOW BOAT |

By Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II

Taking place over 50 years, Show Boat tells the story of a family of performers living on a river boat and their struggles with gambling, race, infidelity, poverty, and the poison of personal secrets. Take a ride down "Ol' Man River" in this American classic spanning three generations of hope and heartbreak. Show Boat is must-see musical theater.
 

The Gershwins®' PORGY AND BESS® |

By George Gershwin, DuBose & Dorothy Heyward, and Ira Gershwin

Porgy is a crippled man living on Catfish Row who has fallen for Bess – a beautiful but troubled woman. A series of unfortunate events brings them together, but can they overcome their desires and choices to stay together? Porgy & Bess is considered to be America's greatest opera.
 

PUCCINI'S TRILOGY |

By Giacomo Puccini

Come see Puccini's legendary trilogy featuring three one-act operas. Il Tabarro is a passionate work of realism set on a barge on the Seine near Paris. Suor Angelica is an uplifting tale of religious redemption. The final act is Gianni Schicchi, a farce full of greed and comic conniving starring Michael Ballam in the title role. Rarely seen in its entirety, Puccini's Trilogy is a can't-miss on your opera bucket list!
 

ORPHEUS |

Conceived by Michael Ballam and Mark Medoff

The legend of Orpheus has captured the imagination of more playwrights and composers than any other source material in history. Orpheus, the god who demonstrates the miraculous power of love and music, makes him the central focus of the new Utah Theatre. Hear the tale told through a variety of renowned composers who have made the legend immortal.
 

BRAVO, CARUSO! |

By William Luce

The author of The Belle of Amherst, The Last Flapper, Bronte, and Lucifer's Child takes you backstage at the Metropolitan Opera, Christmas 1920, to meet the greatest tenor in history. You become a reporter conducting an interview in Enrico Caruso's dressing room as his valet Mario helps him prepare for a performance which, unknown to both men, will be his last. Starring Michael Ballam as Caruso.
