16may7:30 pm8:30 pmLife Relegated: An Epic Rock Opera About a Pretty Great State


Event Details

Deseret Experimental Opera premieres a brand new rock opera, “Life Relegated” on May 16-19, 2019 at the Gateway, 12 S 400 West SLC, UT. Attendees will be guided on a tour of the national parks of southern Utah, played by five local bands – each one representing a different national park.

With original libretto and lyrics by Jacob Rosenzweig, “Life Relegated” will be an opportunity for audience members to learn more about the personal lives of the great parks in our state, following their struggles to make ends meet after funding for public lands has been cut!

This production will be a rock show for the ages, with a cast of over two dozen musicians and dancers performing in large scale, multi-person costumes of Capitol Reef, Canyonlands, Arches, Bryce Canyon, and Zion National Parks.

The rock bands featured in “Life Relegated” include It Foot, It Ears, Durian Durian, Wallfly, 8eaut1ful5, and Millennial Homeowners. Dance will be choreographed and performed by Porridge for Goldilocks, Emma Wilson, Meagan Bertelsen, Carly Schaub, Allison Shir, Emma Sargent, and Peter Larsen.

Mary photobombs Lisa Barlow at the premiere party for Real Housewives of Salt Lake. Below is a snippet from Mary's last editor's letter:⁠

"It’s all a little crazy.⁠
Sometime in 2020, the world stopped making sense for a lot of us. Between one of the ugliest election cycles the U.S. has ever been through and the most mysterious disease most of us have ever experienced, normal was canceled. We can’t get together with friends, hug our loved ones, be in the room with them when they die. But somehow we have to go on, right? Somehow we have to continue to work and love and laugh. This issue of Salt Lake magazine holds a lot of frivolity, the main one being an extremely silly TV show, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. There I am in a pink fur coat in a car with our cover housewife, Lisa Barlow and her boys."⁠

Mary's last-minute holiday gift ideas from last year are still as true and relevant today...⁠

"The planet we live with and the creatures on it need all kinds of things. Polar bears need presents, tree frogs in the Amazon need gifts, our Utah canyons and our national parks need help."⁠

There was never a time there wasn’t Mary Malouf. Until now. Today, Mary died when a rogue wave swept her out to sea off the coast of Northern California. Only she – perhaps the world’s foremost lover of Bronte, BBC mysteries and, of course, Moby Dick – would appreciate such poetic drama.

“I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I'll go to it laughing.” — Mary Brown Malouf. Ooops. Herman Mellville.
