On Friday, February 10 and Saturday, February 11, the American West Heritage Center will offer a special dinner for two, prepared by Logan's historic Blue Bird Restaurant, followed by a vaudeville-style program of magic and music in the opera house.
The night will include wagon rides to and from the venue, historically attired staff, and "spontaneous" gunfights.
Seating for dinner will begin at 6 p.m. with the performance in the opera house to follow.
The performance will feature repertoire from the Richard Hatch family's acclaimed ensemble performances, including "The Ink of the Enamored", an effect conceived by the Viennese conjurer Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser (1806-1875), "in which the transformational power of love is tested with a borrowed wedding or engagement ring to the accompaniment of Wieniaski's famous "Romance" from his second violin concerto," a press release says. Also on the program are Punx's "Heart of Glass," accompanied by Saint-Saens' "The Swan" and "The Music Box of Anna Eva Fay," inspired by the famous vaudeville psychic and accompanied by the first moment of Beethoven's celebrated "Moonlight" Sonata.
