Our Sweet Season is new this year. For the first two nights of each show only, you can enjoy a decadent dessert beforehand. Most nights, the director will drop in as well, to give you extra insights into the night’s performance. Come early (7 p.m.), reserve your seat in the theater, and then relax and enjoy your delicious dessert in the Covey Center Occasional Cafe. Purchase tickets to the show alone, or add dessert for just a little more. How sweet is that? Enjoy a different and delicious dessert with each Black Box play.

In February 2011, enjoy the incredible Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company, fresh from their international tour. This Utah-based contemporary dance group performs to critical acclaim, both here and around the world: The Dance Insider proclaimed, “Judging from the involvement of the Paris audience - in a rare occurrence, they didn't wait until the end of the show but responded with rhythmic clapping even at the intermission curtain - French audiences want more of this.”
The Covey Center is pleased to host this rare Utah County performance.
Utah Lyric Opera: Madama Butterfly_7:30 p.m.; $15, $20, $30_Preview performance Feb 9: $10, $7 students_February 11-12
The Utah Lyric Opera presents one of the most beloved and popular operas in the world, Puccini's *Madama Butterfly*, complete with a cast of world-class artists. Principal singers include international soprano Paula Goodman Wilder as Cio-Cio San, tenor Jason Baldwin as B.F. Pinkerton, baritone Christopher Holmes as Sharpless, mezzo-soprano Stina Eberhardt as Suzuki, and character tenor Isai Jess Munoz as Goro. Based in part on a short story by John Luther Long, *Madama Butterfly* is a heart-wrenching tale about love, betrayal and honor. Set in Nagasaki, this three act opera has the most lush, lyric, and listenable music found in grand opera. Accompanied by a full orchestra, staged and costumed as a dramatized concert, this production will be a visual and musical feast designed by film maker Anne Black and with acclaimed conductor Stephen Dubberly leading the orchestra. Sung in Italian with projected English surtitles, this production is part of the "Opera at the Covey" series which continues the Utah Lyric Opera's mission of bringing world-class opera to Utah county.
Join us the first Friday of every month at 7:30 PM in the Studio Theater where a variety of operatic programs will be presented by Utah's finest opera singers.
