Salt Lake City's arts tradition officially started in 1847 with the Deseret Musical and Dramatic Society, founded by Brigham Young. The city has continued to give strong support for the arts, even voting for a special tax to support cultural organizations like the opera and symphony. Ballet West and the Utah Symphony have kept Utah on the nation's cultural map. The Capitol and Rose Wagner theaters host Broadway touring companies. The Pioneer Theatre Company and Plan-B Theatre Company produce the most successful theatre productions. Lesser-known and locally written plays are presented in small theaters throughout the valley.
