The Friday, Dec. 5, performance of "Recibid al Rey" in the Tabernacle on Temple Square has been canceled. However, scheduled performances at 2 and 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 6, will still go as planned.
All ticket holders for Friday's canceled show are invited to attend the Saturday evening performance.
Friday's show was canceled because of the funeral services for LDS Church Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin and the fact that a different stage for "Recibid" cannot be set up in time.
Thursday's dress rehearsal of "Recibid" also has been canceled.
