Should USUO need to cancel or change elements of the season, ticket holders would be notified about options for ticket donations or exchanges into alternate programs.

Vadim Gluzman returns to Utah to perform it on the incredible 1690 “ex-Leopold Auer” Stradivarius.Schubert’s incidental music for the melodrama Die Zauberharfe (The Magic Harp) survives thanks almost exclusively to this warm-hearted overture, a rare gem that was itself nearly lost to time. Estimated concert length: 1 hour, 50 minutes (including a 20 minute intermission)
