Four big Salt Lake County arts venues are reopening soon
The venues will follow modified health and safety guidelines, including social distancing and mandatory face coverings, county spokeswoman Cami Munk said in a statement.
“The health and safety of our performers, patrons, and staff are of the upmost importance to us,” Munk said. “Our phased reopening plans will support us getting back to presenting work to live audiences in a way that protects everyone.”
Ballet West’s next scheduled production is “Bolero and The Dream,” a pair of works — one using Ravel’s “Bolero,” the other a retelling of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” It’s scheduled to run April 9-17 at the Capitol Theatre.
The next performer scheduled to play the Eccles Theater is comedian Bill Maher on April 24. The next touring Broadway production scheduled to arrive at the Eccles is “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” running May 11-16.
Utah Symphony and Utah Opera have not yet announced their next live shows.
The venues were first closed a year ago, along with schools, colleges and most other large gathering places in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Abravanel Hall reopened Sept. 17 for performances by the Utah Symphony, with limited seating and the orchestra in its first shows limited to strings and percussion — instruments that can be played while wearing masks.
As cases of COVID-19 surged last fall, the county ordered the four venues closed beginning Nov. 23. The closure prompted the cancellation of several holiday events, including Utah Symphony’s sing-along “Messiah,” Ballet West’s production of “The Nutcracker,” and Utah musician Kurt Bestor’s annual Christmas concert at the Eccles.
