Visually-impaired guests are invited along with a driver/seeing companion to attend the Wednesday night dress rehearsal of Utah Opera’s production of Massenet’s Thaïs on Wednesday, May 1, 2024.

At 6:00 PM, our Artistic Director and Opera Education Manager 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.

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.

Doors open at 5:30 PM.

Dress rehearsal performance begins at 7:00 PM.
