In the summer of 2007, New York native bass-baritone performer Earl Hazell delayed a planned European tour to perform a creatively challenging repertoire at the Utah Festival Opera.
At the same time, Arizona State University vocal graduate student Alexis Davis was recommended by her voice teacher to seek out-of-state performance opportunities, joining the Utah Festival Opera in her first major on-stage role outside of Arizona.
Nearly a decade later, Earl and Alexis have returned to Logan to perform in the Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre’s 2016 season — this time as husband and wife instead of strangers.
