Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City's arts tradition officially started in 1847 with the Deseret Musical and Dramatic Society, founded by Brigham Young. The city has continued to give strong support for the arts, even voting for a special tax to support cultural organizations such as the opera and symphony. Ballet West, the Utah Symphony, and Utah Opera have kept the state on the nation's cultural map. The Capitol Theatre and Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center host Broadway touring companies. The Pioneer Theatre Company and Plan-B Theatre produce the most successful theater productions. Many film lovers forgo the snow and the crowds of Park City to enjoy the 10-day Sundance Film Festival at a half-dozen Salt Lake City venues every January. Lesser-known and locally written plays are presented in small theaters throughout the valley.
