Prince Tamino is lost in a far-off land and being pursued by a serpent.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Follow Joseph as he is sold into Egypt. Told completely in song, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is one of the most celebrated and dazzling musicals of all time. It’s big. It’s flashy. It’s fun! It’s biblical satire you’ll never forget complete with Elvis, music from calypso to cowboy tunes and a powerful lesson in the end. Utah Festival’s Joseph is nothing short of spectacular. Don’t miss it!
Set in southern Spain, the opera tells the story of Don Jose, a naïve soldier who is seduced by the fiery gypsy Carmen. Jose upends his life to be with her, yet still manages to lose her to the torero Escamillo. Tragedy ensues in one of the most popular and frequently performed operas in the classical canon. Featuring the legendary arias “Habanera” and “Toreador Song”, Carmen will remind you why you love going to the opera.
She Loves Me
Georg and Amalia are coworkers who don’t get along. Thankfully they each find comfort in letters from anonymous pen pals. If only they knew they were corresponding with each other! She Loves Me is the original version of the hit movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop Around the Corner. It’s a delightful and charming story from the creators of Fiddler on the Roof. Treat yourself to this feel-good 1963 musical theatre masterpiece.

A prisoner of the Spanish Inquisition, Miquel de Cervantes stages a play using his fellow inmates in a bid to save his possessions and his prized manuscript.
