“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart.”
Academy Award-winning composer Rachel Portman and librettist Nicholas Wright took Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s beloved story, The Little Prince, and turned it into a magical opera. The Little Prince follows a story narrated by a stranded pilot, performed by baritone Jared Bybee, who meets a young prince that has fallen to Earth from a tiny asteroid. As The Little Prince explores the Earth, he meets a number of colorful, and often puzzling, characters. Experience a night of magic and wonder the entire family will enjoy when Utah Opera unveils imaginative designer Jacob A. Climer’s new production of The Little Prince.
Sung in English with English supertitles projected.
