Life at the Speed of Light

 J. Craig Venter, Ph.D., is Founder, Chairman, and CEO of the J. Craig Venter Institute (JVCI), a not-for-profit, research organization dedicated to human, microbial, plant, synthetic and environmental research. He is also Co-Founder and CEO of Synthetic Genomics Inc. (SGI), a privately-held company dedicated to commercializing genomic-driven solutions to address global needs. In 1998, Dr. Venter founded Celera Genomics to sequence the human genome using new tools and techniques he and his team developed. This research culminated with the February 2001 publication of the human genome in the journal, Science. Dr. Venter and his team at JVCI continue to blaze new trails in genomics. They have sequenced and analyzed hundreds of genomes and created the first self-replicating bacterial cell constructed with synthetic DNA.

In 2010, Dr. Venter and his team at the JCVI successfully constructed the first "synthetic bacterial cell" putting humankind at the threshold of a new phase of biological research, one that is enabling us to go from reading the genetic code (sequencing genomes) to now writing the genetic code for designing new species. The science of synthetic genomics will have a profound impact on society, including new methods for chemical and energy production, human health and medical advances, clean water, and new food and nutritional products. Dr. Venter, regarded as one of the leading scientists of the 21st century for his numerous pioneering advances in genomics, will guide us through this emerging field, detailing its origins, current challenges, and the potential positive advances.

Dr. Venter is a pioneer of the genomics revolution. His work on synthetic biology truly embodies the theme of “pushing the boundaries of life.” Essentially, Venter is seeking to “write the software of life” to create microbes designed by humans rather than only through evolution. The potential benefits and risks of this new technology are enormous. It also requires us to examine, both scientifically and philosophically, the question of “What is life?”

Tchaikovsky's Suite No 3

Guest Conductor Andrey Boreyko returns to Abravanel Hall for a concert featuring two contrasting Russian works, written just a few years apart. Tchaikovsky's evocative and balletic 3rd Orchestral Suite was originally intended as a symphony while Rimsky-Korsakov's uplifting Russian Easter Overture celebrated the musical history of Russian Orthodoxy. Messiaen's gorgeous mediations on the ascension of Christ complete the program. - See more at: http://www.utahsymphony.org/concerts/item/890-tchaikovskys-suite-no-3#sthash.2vw1Qu10.dpuf

War Horse

“War Horse” tells the story of young Albert’s beloved horse, Joey, which has been sold to the cavalry and shipped to France. In a tale that the Sunday Express said is “…both epic and intimate,” and “absolutely guaranteed to move the heart,” Joey is caught in enemy crossfire and ends up serving both sides of the war before landing in no man’s land. Albert, not old enough to enlist, embarks on a treacherous mission to find his horse and bring him home. What follows is a remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship.

“War Horse” is filled with stirring music and songs, and at the heart of the show are life-sized puppets which bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to life on stage. “The puppetry is nothing short of miraculous,” according to The Times of London.

Holi Festival of Colors SLC

Great Mantra Bands, DJ's, Top Yoga Teachers, Dance, Hourly Color Throws, Cuisine, Free Hugs, & Lotsa Love.
Ancient Tradition

In India, Holi announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. The festival breathes an atmosphere of social merriment. People bury their hatchets with a warm embrace and throw their worries to the wind. Every nook and corner presents a colorful sight. Young and old alike are covered with colors (red, green, yellow, blue, black and silver). People in small groups are seen singing, dancing and throwing colors on each other. Though liquid colors are used in India (where it’s warm) we prohibit them, as we don’t want anyone to catch cold on account of the festival. Dry is better for photographs as well.

Modern Adaptation

Holi has long traditional links with several legends. According to one popular legend, the word Holi is derived from the demoness, Holika. She was the sister of Hiranya Kashipu (the name meaning love of gold and a soft bed), a demon king, who having defeated the Gods, proclaimed his supremacy over everyone else in the Universe. Enraged over his son’s ardent devotion to Lord Vishnu, Hiranya Kashipu decides to punish him. He takes the help of his sister, Holika, who is immune to any damage from fire. Holika carries the small boy Prahlad into the fire but a divine intervention destroys her and saves Prahlad from getting burned. Thus Holi is celebrated to mark the burning of the evil Holika. Her effigy is consumed in the fire!

Holi is celebrated with special importance in the North of India. It solemnizes the love of Radha and Krishna. The spraying of colored powders recalls the love sport of Lord Krishna and His devotees.

The color, noise and entertainment that accompanies the celebration of Holi bears witness to a feeling of oneness and sense of brotherhood. The festival brings home the lesson of spiritual and social harmony!!

Mozart's The Abduction from the Seraglio

The opera that put Mozart's name on the European cultural map.

The Abduction from the Seraglio tells of a fair damsel who, like most operatic damsels, finds herself in great distress! Will the dashing nobleman rescue her from her Turkish keepers and the powerful ruler who desires to possess her? Or will the true lovers die in the attempt?

After a season filled with passion, drama, and grandeur, Utah Opera ends the season with something light and fun. Mozart's incomparable skill for vocal melody and dramatic tension are on full display in this exotic, colorful production that you're guaranteed to love.
