Spring Opera: Staggerwing and Men I’m Not Married To

Friday, May 26
7:30 PM
Choral Hall (2231)

BYU Opera presents a concert performance featuring two unpublished works by composer Lisa DeSpain and librettist Rachel J. Peters: Staggerwing tells the story of female pilots Louise Thaden and Blanche Noyes, who won the Bendix Trophy Air Race in 1936. Men I’m Not Married To, based on a story by Dorothy Parker, follows the conversation of three bridesmaids in a ladies’ lounge in the 1920s. Join our talented vocal students for this delightful evening of jazz-inspired opera.
