What an exciting opening night! Upon entering the Capitol Theatre one could purchase Dean Spear’s book “On Technique” and have it signed by the author and Bene Arnold. Then one could listen to “Warm Ups” given by Adam Sklute and New York Post critic Leigh Witchel. Then the Governor spoke on stage in front of the curtain to commend Ballet West on its high level of artistry and ability to bring tourists to Utah. Then came “Balanchine’s America”.
