University of Utah Lyric Opera Ensemble

The University Lyric Opera Ensemble performs regularly each spring in Kingsbury Hall with the Utah Philharmonia under the direction of Conductor Rob Baldwin. Cathy Reese of the Salt Lake Tribune wrote of the Ensemble in 2012, “The University of Utah Lyric Opera Ensemble continues to grow. The U.’s opera program, known for its pluck and its DIY scenery in the 1990s, now reliably presents professional-quality productions.” Ed Reichel of “Reichel Recommends” wrote similarly, “It seems that every year the productions get better and stronger and Susannah really shows that the group performs on a professional level.”

The ensemble has been led by Dr. Robert Breault since 1992. Jeffrey Price provides the music direction.
