Paulo Szot, the acclaimed and versatile baritone with matinee idol looks, will make
his debut at Segerstrom Center for the Arts December 15 - 18 in Samueli Theater. His star-making turn in the smash revival of South Pacific was one of the most talked-about performances of that, or any other, year. Since that Tony winning performance, he has continued to wow audiences every time he takes the
stage, from the Metropolitan Opera to the Café Carlyle and beyond. The New York Times wrote, "Mr. Szot's lady-killer aura is matched vocally by a much more persuasive emotional connection with this material...He delivered it with the authority of Zeus hurling thunderbolts."
