Thank you for helping to make Fatal Song a success

What would happen if Violetta, Carmen, Mimi and other famous opera heroines met in an alternative theatrical universe to beg the question: must the diva always die in the end? Salt Lake Acting Company Resident Playwright Kathleen Cahill imagines this very possibility in her witty and irreverent Fatal Song, where our favorite characters attempt to confront their shared musical mortality by staring death in the face and singing "No!"

Designed as a unique way to welcome new audiences to the opera house, Fatal Song has enjoyed success with novices and veterans alike. Whether you know every note by heart or are hearing the music for the first time, this experience will feature the greatest melodies ever written and allow you to see the tragic women who must sing them - unto death every night - in a whole new way. Trust us, it's ok to laugh this time!
