Utah Opera will present a special performance of The Abduction from the Seraglio for blind and visually-impaired members of the community. Organized by the Utah Symphony | Utah Opera Education Department, this event is an opportunity for blind and visually-impaired patrons to attend the Wednesday, May 7 evening dress rehearsal of the opera.

At 6:00 PM, Paula Fowler, the Director of Education and Outreach and Carol Anderson, Principal Coach,, will talk with the group about the opera, pass around props and prepared fabric samples of costumes, and share information about the set design. Braille translations and large print synopses are available, as well as headsets through which a play-by-play description of stage action is broadcast from the translator's booth. Vicki Flake will serve as this spoken version of the opera's action. This event, held in the Capitol Theatre, is an annual collaboration between Utah Opera, the Moran Eye Center, and the Utah Council for the Blind.
