Carmina Burana, a Utah fan favorite appears alongside the Utah premiere of Jerome Robbins’ Glass Pieces.
“The day after Nicolo Fonte’s Carmina Burana closed in 2017, patrons were asking when I would stage it again,” said Sklute.
With an immense choir suspended over the stage, the reviews were outstanding, “Beautiful, gripping, and dynamic,” declared The Salt Lake Tribune.
The program opens with Glass Pieces, Robbins’ pioneering masterpiece set to music by Philip Glass. The work first debuted in 1983 and was considered an instant classic that captured the pulsating heartbeat of metropolitan life.
