Opera and its Voices in Utah

Utah State University Press, Utah State Special Collection
In volume 23 of the Arrington Lecture Series, Walter B. Rudolph explores Utah’s operatic history. There is no other written history of opera in Utah and while references are random, they can be consistently found. The list of visiting operatic artists to the Beehive state is imposing, even extraordinary, and equally unexpected is the diversity of standard repertoire and those works unique to, or composed about, Utah. In turn, Utah’s operatic assets have given to the world’s arsenal of singers and created an audience of unique proportions.
The Arrington Lecture series, established by one of the twentieth-century West's most distinguished historians, Leonard Arrington, has become a leading forum for prominent historians to address topics related to Mormon history. Utah State University hosts the Leonard J. Arrington Mormon History Lecture Series through the Merrill-Cazier Library Special Collections and Archives department.
Walter B. Rudolph earned a bachelor’s in music and a master’s in musicology from BYU. He started a career in performance and teaching in the mid 1970s before turning to public radio. With Rudolph as the General Manager, KBYU-FM became the noted source of classical music and arts support to the Wasatch front communities.
