Blind and Visually Impaired Night at the Opera
Janet Quinney Lawson Capitol Theatre
50 W 200 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84101, USA Get Directions


Visually-impaired guests are invited along with a driver/seeing companion to attend the Wednesday night dress rehearsal of Utah Opera’s production of Rossini’s The Barber of Seville.

At 6:00 PM, our Artistic Director 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. For this service, call 801-715-6789.

This concert is FREE but registration is required.
