The Kahilu Theatre will present the three operatic tenors known as Ultimi on Sunday, Feb. 2, 2020, at 2 p.m. As part of the Kahilu Theatre Overture Program, all students ages 8-18 will have free admittance to this performance when accompanied by a ticket-holding adult. Ticket info below.
Ultimi (Pronounced “ool-tee-me”) combines the vocal and instrumental talents of three professional opera singers, Isaac Hurtado, Tyler Nelson, and Brian Stucki. First joining forces in February 2014, the three charming vocalists from Utah have separately performed well over 100 operatic tenor roles combined and numerous concerts across the US and abroad. The name “Ultimi” means “Latest” and has a connection to the Italian name of the shared Mormon faith of Isaac, Brian and Tyler.
Isaac Hurtado specializes in full-lyric Italian and French repertoire, including the leading tenor roles in La Boehme, La Traviata, Rigoletto, Madame Butterfly, Romeo and Juliette, and Werther. Critics say he has “Movie Star good-looks” and “money notes worth every penny.”
Tyler Nelson is a true “tenore di Grazia,” a tenor with clean, bright high notes and lightning-fast agility. He specializes in Rossini and Mozart roles and has breath for days. He is also a professor of Voice and father of three.
Brian Stucki, also a professor, not only has a voice of both power and nuance, but he plays the cello like Yo Yo Ma and often does it while singing! He has a vast repertoire of concert and opera roles and is known for his complete mastery of dynamics and vocal shading.
