Utah Opera produces four operas each season, usually in October, January, March and May in a beautiful, recently refurbished opera house. We've been subscribers for many years and performances get better every season. The production of Cosi Fan Tutte, set in the 1920's, which we saw last week was our third and by far the best Cosi. If you're fortunate... More

Capitol Theatre is always such a lovely place to view an opera, though as a plus size woman the chairs are a bit small. The performance was great and we had such a lovely time. Ticket prices were good, though if you buy the cheap seats do it WAY in advance to get better seats. We paid 18 $ and... More

I'm not exactly a high brow -- I have season tickets to Grizzlies Hockey and to the Utah Opera. And the opera never disappoints for great entertainment. Even non-classical fans would be delighted with the acting and fantastic sets. And oh! The music. Outstanding Every. Single. Time.

This was my Mother-in-law's first opera and she couldn't stop raving about how much she enjoyed it. We both laughed, listened to the music, and had a wonderful evening. Thank you.

We've been going for three seasons now, and have never been disappointed in a production. "Cosi fan Tutti" was visually intriguing, funny as could be, and full of gorgeous singing. Can hardly believe how lucky we are to live in a mid-size city with such great opera, not to mention first-class symphony and ballet as well. We see many more... More

We have been season subscribers for a few years. We have never been disappointed in a production of the Utah Opera. We especially enjoy the attention to detail, fine musicianship, great sets and fabulous costuming. We really, really enjoy the pre-show lecture beginning an hour before curtain. Currently it is held in a room in the new ballet building. We... More

Cossi Fan Tutte was sensationally good--this from a long-time Mozart fan and regular opera-goer both in Utah and elsewhere. When modern-dress was the announced staging this time, we thought, "Oh, not again--another cover-up for poor casting, poor realization." We were wrong. The production was 100% magnificent. Over the years, we've come to realize that in backwater Utah we have a... More

We went to opening night of Pearl Fishers on Saturday. The two leading male roles were superb and well-casted. The night we went there was a substitution for Nadir who we would have not even known was not casted as the primary choice. He was excellent! The choreography for the opening chorus in the first act was a bit odd... More

Lived for years in a city that had that had a famous orchestra; but rarely went because of the cost and difficult access. Utah Symphony is very good, and if you are willing to do floor level, the ticket costs are amazingly low. Can park for free just down the street. Beautiful building and they also have great visiting soloists.... More
