Presented by Utah Symphony at Abravanel Hall

Just before Halloween, take a chance to dance on the wild side as three composers entangle with one of the most notable figures in storytelling—Death. The hooded figure is raised by the sounds of the symphony (by way of the recognizable Dies Irae theme from the Latin Mass for the Dead repeated in each work), with Rachmaninoff’s towering Symphony No. 2, Liszt’s eerie Totentanz performed by audience-favorite Joyce Yang, and Saint-Saëns’ Danse Macabre—which, from its cry on the solo violin to its bone-rattling finale, is all too ready to summon spirits. This performance is part of our Masterworks Magnified series, designed to invite audiences to experience our music in new ways—with added elements like video projections and special lighting in the concert hall, conversations with the performers, and fun lobby activities on theme with the concert.
