I was able to find two great reviews from bloggers who attended Utah Opera’s Cinderella. Both of them loved it as much as I did (I actually went twice!).
We went to the Utah Symphony and Utah Opera’s production of “Cinderella” at the Capital Theatre in SLC last night. Whoa. Klint and I had such a great time! The talented musicians and vocalists were amazing! I had perma-goosebumps the whole time. The vocalists have so much control and power, it’s boggling! As we left Klint said, “I’ll never knock opera again…”
Klint, that’s exactly how I felt after my first Opera. The talent it takes to sing opera is amazing.
Friday evening, Wes and I were treated with his dad’s 3rd row tickets to see the Utah Opera at the Capitol Theater. We saw Cinderella by Rossini and it was delightful. I haven’t been to an opera for a long time but I loved it. My first experience with opera at the Capitol Theater was when I was a child – my parents took me to see Madame Butterfly. They related the story to me in the car on the way about the tragic love story between an American Lieutenant and a beautiful Japanese Geisha. I hate to admit I was a little disappointed when the lovely Madame Butterfly was portrayed by a very large, very overpowering, middle-aged African-American woman (no offense intended – I was just a little girl expecting a young asian beauty). I really loved the music, though. Anyway, thanks to Dave and Connie for a marvelous experience.
I’m happy to hear you enjoyed Cinderella. Both of you mentioned Madame Butterfly, which Utah Opera will be producing next year. There are four great operas next season, and I’m sure you won’t want to miss any of them. Season subscriptions for our upcoming season are currently on sale for as little as $42.
