Il Trovatore

On Saturday I was lucky enough to attend the Utah Opera for opening night. It was such a blast and my first trip to the Opera. I was able to bring a guest, so I brought my sister. She's a singer and lover of the arts, I knew she would really appreciate it.

We got there early to listen to the lecture, but before that, I had to explore this awesome wire garden! During the lecture they told us about Il Trovatore (the troubadour, the opera we were seeing) and the music. Then we headed outside to walk the red carpet, you know, like celebrities. ;)

The Utah Opera is at the Capitol Theater, it is beautiful, probably my favorite theater in Utah. The singing and production was wonderful. They did a great job. And on the way out, everyone received a little gold box of chocolates. If you're looking for a fun night out on the town in downtown SLC- head to the Opera!

It was such a fun night, and I loved having a reason to really dress up. Outfit post coming soon!

It was also fun to see some of my favorite Utah bloggers there as well!

What a cool experience! That wire garden is really neat, and I LOVE the picture you took of the Capitol theater! Very cool. I've never been to an opera since my husband has flat out refused to go to anything like that with me, but I'm sure I'll go one day!

Love your dress! I was also lucky enough to be among the style bloggers invited, and it was amazing. The whole night felt like something out of a glam, 1920s dream...
