Salt Lake Tribune: Utah Opera brings back some classics for 2019-2020 season, and the Utah premiere of a Pulitzer winner about World War I
Utah Opera has set forth some big challenges for its 2019-2020 season: One of the toughest vocal roles in all of opera, the classics “La Traviata” and “The Barber of Seville,” and the Utah premiere of a 2012 Pulitzer Prize-winning American work.
The new season, announced Thursday, will be happening in the newly renovated Capitol Theatre. The theater at 50 S. 200 West, a former movie palace that is home to both Utah Opera and Ballet West, will close in April for a six-month renovation. When it reopens in October, the orchestra section will have more legroom, improved sight lines, a cross aisle and improved wheelchair access.
