Night for the Blind & Visually Impaired

Wednesday, May 6, 2015 | 6 PM
Capitol Theater
50 West 200 South Salt Lake City

Visually-impaired guests are invited along with a driver/seeing companion to attend the Wednesday night dress rehearsal of Utah Opera’s production of Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress. The event is free of charge.

At 6:00 PM, our Principal Coach and Director of Education & Outreach will talk about the opera, pass around prepared fabric samples of costumes, and share information about the set. Braille translations of the supertitles and large print copies of the synopsis are available, as well as headsets through which a play-by-play description of stage action is broadcast from our translator's booth. 

This event is an annual collaboration between Utah Opera, the Moran Eye Center, and the Utah Council for the Blind. The Library for the Blind will have brailed supertitle scripts/libretti that can be picked up from the library. Call Jan Sonshine for this service 801-715-6789.



Access to Music: A Concert for Children with Special Needs and their FamiliesAccess-to-Music-2016-web

Thursday, January 21, 2016 | 7 PM
Capitol Theater
50 West 200 South Salt Lake City

Utah Symphony | Utah Opera offers an annual concert for children with special needs and their families. We present this concert because we know that many families cannot attend cultural events together because their special needs child acts in distracting ways. We feature our Opera Resident Artists with the Utah Symphony on the Capitol Theater Stage in a special concert where everyone understands the difficulty of keeping these children quiet in their seats. This concert is FREE but registration is required. 

The doors of Capitol Theater will open at 6:30 PM, and the concert will begin at 7 PM. Seating is general admission. After the concert, please join us for cookies in the lobby.
