2015 SEASON

Dear Festival Family,

Thank you for joining us for our 23rd season! Together we will share the masterworks of Puccini, Loesser, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Carl Orff and Cervantes.

We are grateful and excited to unveil the newly renovated historic Utah Theatre to enhance our offerings for years to come. The additional theater, as well as our successes of the past decades are because of you. Your generosity, patronage and encouragement mean so much.

I invite you to enjoy Utah Festival's exciting season. After all, you have helped make it possible.

MICHAEL BALLAM
Founding General Director



OPERAS & MUSICALS




MAN OF LA MANCHA |

By Mitch Leigh & Joe Darion

A prisoner of the Spanish Inquisition, Miguel de Cervantes stages a play using his fellow inmates in a bid to save his possessions including his prized manuscript. He becomes Don Quixote and wins over his comrades with hilarious antics and devotion to chivalry. Starring Michael Ballam as Don Quixote, Man of La Mancha dreams "The Impossible Dream" of the down and out – but noble of heart.
 

"HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY
TRYING" |

By Frank Loesser

J. Pierrepont Finch is a window washer with ambition. Using advice from a self-help book, he climbs the corporate ladder at World Wide Wickets and wins over the hearts of his coworkers and Rosemary Pilkington. It's a wild ride to the top featuring musical numbers like "A Secretary Is Not a Toy," "Cinderella, Darling," and "Brotherhood of Man." How To Succeed is classic Broadway and loads of fun. You'll love it!
 

LA BOHÈME |

By Giacomo Puccini

Young Bohemian Rodolfo and his friends struggle to make it as artists in Paris, but his life changes when a chance encounter with a seamstress named Mimi lights a flame in their hearts. Will they find lasting love, or will jealousy and poverty drive them apart? La Bohème is one of the most beloved and performed operas of all time. Don't miss this timeless classic.
 

CAROUSEL |

By Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein II

Carefree carnival barker Billy Bigelow loses his job. Nevertheless, he marries Julie, and when she tells him she's pregnant, he commits a robbery in desperation to provide for his family. Little did he know of the lasting consequences. Will he get a chance to right his wrongs? Carousel has been a Broadway favorite for 70 years, exploring themes of consequences, love, and redemption.



SPECIAL PERFORMANCES
& CONCERTS




THE PIANISTS! |

Join our talented professional pianists in an unpredictable concert of classic hits where they'll be dressing up, playing jokes on each other, and who knows what other mayhem will ensue. It's an unforgettable combo of precision, showmanship, and fun. Bring the kids. They'll love it!
 

INTERNATIONAL OPERA COMPETITION SEMIFINALS
