Strauss’ Don Juan

Strauss’ Don Juan
Abravanel Hall
123 W South Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84101, USA Get Directions


You’ve heard of Don Juan. But have you felt the pain as he languishes in his ultimate solitude? Strauss’ Don Juan is a heartbreaking retelling of the lothario who searches for his soulmate until he succumbs to loneliness. The pain is exquisitely punctuated with the romantic melodies of Barber’s First Symphony, and former Associate Conductor Conner Gray Covington also takes us through works that span nearly 350 years—from Haydn (the “father of the symphony”) to the world premiere of Quinn Mason’s Trombone Concerto, written for Principal Trombone Mark Davidson.


Join us for a pre-concert chat about the evening’s program with Assistant Conductor Matthew Straw joined by guest artists and symphony musicians, held 45 minutes prior to the performance start time in the First Tier Room.
