Tabernacle had a stellar year; opera discovered "Grapes"

Vintage opera: The pinnacle of the opera season was Ricky Ian Gordon and Michael Korie's "The Grapes of Wrath," cocommissioned by Utah Opera and presented in Salt Lake City in May. Gordon and Korie's "Grapes" masterfully captured the scope and spirit of John Steinbeck's epic novel.
