Steve Jobs relentlessly dedicated himself to creating the perfect device while wrestling with his own imperfections. He created technology to connect us all while struggling to connect with those around him. Faced with his mortality, Jobs re-visits moments that shaped his life—from a young romance to his dramatic fall from the C-suite—and circles back with newfound understanding.
This Grammy-nominated, “totally user-friendly” opera (Los Angeles Times) is a smart and sleek take on the entrepreneur who changed our modern world forever.
John Moore makes his Utah Opera debut in the lead role and—according to composer Mason Bates—“so vividly creates the lead role that, by the end, you will be half-certain you are witnessing the man himself.”
Please be advised, this production contains strobe lighting effects and adult language.
