(July 12 – August 11, 2012) Utah Festival Opera is a summer festival known in part for its historic venue, the restored Ellen Eccles Theatre, but it is also notable for the abundance of special concerts and events offered in addition to its four annual opera and musical theatre productions. Since 1993, the Festival’s repertoire has featured such canonical operas as Madama Butterfly, La Traviata, and The Magic Flute, operetta classics Die Fledermaus and The Pirates of Penzance, and musical theatre favorites South Pacific, Annie Get Your Gun, and The Music Man. Free Informance discussions take place before every performance.
In the educational sphere, Opera by Children—as the name suggests—enables students to create and perform in their own operas, and trains teachers to facilitate the classroom program. There is also the Festival Conservatory for students through age 18, and the Festival Academy, an adult education curriculum.
