LEGEND OF TIMPANOGOS: Utah Valley University’s Utah Regional Ballet will perform its signature piece for the 20th year running. “Over the years, ‘Legend’ has burned a special place in my heart and the hearts of the any dancers who have performed it,” said Jacqueline Colledge, artistic director for the Utah Regional Ballet “There is a spirit surrounding this ballet that makes it appealing to audiences around the world. The dramatic love triangle seems to leave a lasting effect.” The romantic ballet depicts the legend of the Nez Perce Indian tribe who once occupied the Utah Valley and the tales told by Chief Walker of the two lovers, Timpanac and Ucanogos, for whom the mountain is named. Performances will be held at the Covey Center for the Arts, which is owned and operated by Provo City, at 7: 30 p.m. Sept. 27 and 28. Tickets range from $16-20. Go to uvu.edu/arts or coveycenter.org or call 801-852-7007 for more information.
