“Prior Springdale performances by the Utah Opera have garnered large audiences and rave reviews from both opera connoisseurs and novice audience members,” Z-Arts President Nancy Guardabascio said.

In their “Once Upon a Time” concert, Utah Opera’s five resident artists will perform scenes from a variety of fairy tale stories, including Mozart’s “Magic Flute” and modern classics such as “Frozen” and “Into the Woods.”  They’ll also explore the timeless tale of “Cinderella,” as interpreted by composers as diverse as Rossini, Massenet, Rodgers & Hammerstein and Stephen Sondheim.

Z-Arts invites the public to come experience fairy tale magic in this family-friendly one-hour musical event. Admission at the door will be $5 per person or $10 per family.

According to the the Utah Opera’s website, its resident artists for 2015-16 include soprano Jessica Jones, mezzo-soprano Sarah Coit, tenor Christian Sanders, baritone Makel Reed and pianist Timothy Accurso.
