Description: 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.
