Utah Opera
Artistic director Christopher McBeth dazzles the imagination by combining complex characters with vibrant, painstakingly intricate costumes, ornate sets and beautiful lighting; opera is greater than the sum of its parts. Differentiating between a timbre and tessitura is unnecessary to feel the deeply resonating rapport of raw, fierce convictions. Explosively romantic, this year’ s heroines are unforgettable and thrilling. Encountering lost lovers, suspicious spouses and meddling minions, you will experience an octave of emotions, from gaiety to despair. Bring a handkerchief to dab the tears off your tux. Carmen (Jan. 16-24), The Italian Girl in Algiers (March 13-21) and Suor Angelica & Gianni Schicchi (May 15-23). Capitol Theatre, 50 W. 200 South, 801-355-2787, UtahOpera.org.

Utah Symphony
Ever imagine, while using your toothbrush as a baton, that you are a maestro? Reserve it for teeth cleaning and leave the conducting to the professionals. Playing musical chairs, various conductors will wield the baton to direct spirited interpretations of classics, from playful to darkly romantic. One is Thierry Fischer, the new music director, the seventh in 70 years. Other highlights include Music Director Emeritus Keith Lockhart revisiting and composer Steven Mackey performing two of his latest. Along with consistency, Utah Symphony is full of vitality and warmth, vivacious scores, and exuberant aplomb. Abravanel Hall, 123 W. South Temple, 801-323-6800, UtahSymphony.org
