UNWOUND: Carmina Burana - Canceled
Abravanel Hall

At a press conference on March 12, Utah Governor Gary Herbert and the Utah Department of Health recommended limiting gatherings of groups of 100 or more for two weeks starting March 16. Per this recommendation, this event has been cancelled. We are currently evaluating whether any cancelled events can be rescheduled. Ticket buyers should visit our COVID-19 Update Page for ticketing options.



Lose the tie, grab a drink, and join us for a casual night with the symphony at UNWOUND: Carmina Burana. This heightened visual experience will bring you up close and personal with incredible music and immersive lobby activities. It will be just like going on a date to Medieval Times, but without the turkey legs or fake jousting.

Concert highlights include:

Don’t miss one of classical music’s greatest concert spectacles, the shocking and thrilling Carmina Burana by Carl Orff.
Prepare to be amazed by a jaw-dropping light display to accompany the performance.
Jeff Counts, co-host of USUO’s Ghost Light Podcast will act as your resident bard for the evening.
