Beer & Ballet @ Capitol Theatre 04.14

Performance & Theatre

The night of all nights so far in 2016 came in the form of a collaboration between some of the best local brew and Salt Lake City’s most graceful dancers. As if ballet could be any more amazing to watch, the creative geniuses behind Epic Brewery and Ballet West decided to host one of the best times of my life. The intricate blend of food, beer and ballet mixed together so well that I still find myself spinning in circles thinking about it, as though I was one of the dancers performing an unending pirouette.  All my senses were engaged throughout the night, even to the point of satiating my belly the delicious food provided by Le Croissant Catering. Regardless of attendees’ affinity or lack thereof for ballet, there wasn’t a single person who left without a smile by the end of the night. I could think of no better venue to host such an event than Capitol Theatre, where its modern upgrades married so well with the historical aspects of the crown molding and chandeliers that we have all come to know and love.  If you are just now hearing of this event, you need to stop what you’re doing, open a new tab on your browser and head over the Capitol Theatre‘s website and pick up tickets to this week’s performance of The Nijinsky Revolution.
