All in a Day (in Blanding)
Blanding Arts & Events Center
715 West 200 South Blanding, Utah 84511 Get Directions


Join the Utah Opera Resident Artists for a musical celebration of everyday events! All in a Day is a family-friendly concert filled with musical numbers from opera and musical theatre, progressing from the morning through the evening of a very good day: one that ends with birthday party!

Featuring Happy Birthday, a new short opera commissioned by Utah Opera from Utah composer Andrew Maxfield and librettist Ruthie Prillaman, this production addresses the controversy—and resolution!—of the question, “Who really owns the ‘Happy Birthday’ song?”

Runtime: Approx. 60 minutes, no intermission.

Tickets are free thanks to the sponsorship of the Kigalia Fine Arts Council of Blanding.
