January 19 - 27 The Little Prince
"Baritone Jared Bybee in his Utah Opera debut gave a powerful and finely nuanced performance as the Pilot, who is both part of the story and its narrator. Bybee has a mellow, sonorous voice that carries well, and his vocal lyricism blended wonderfully with Nitai’s youthful timbre, never overpowering him. In their portrayals was a deep kinship — an understanding — that makes one consider that the prince might be the pilot as a child." UtahArtsReview.com, Edward Reichel, 1/20/2019
The narrator is The Pilot, wonderfully played and sung by Jared Bybee. This fine actor’s strong and sure baritone commands the stage as The Pilot pulls the audience through the story of his encounter with Little Prince.
