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

Saturday, May 27
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BYU Opera presents a concert performance featuring two unpublished works by composer Lisa DeSpain and librettist Rachel J. Peters: Staggerwing tells the story of female pilots Louise Thaden and Blanche Noyes, who won the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.


Live Streaming Update

We look forward to this year in the new state-of-the-art BYU Music Building. We appreciate the hard work, cooperation and patience from everyone involved in the effort to construct and relocate to a new building.

The finishing touches and technical calibration of the Concert and Recital Hall will require additional time before its public debut, including streaming services for all performances.

Join us in person for some of our finishing-touch performances or subscribe to get notified when online concert streaming will begin again.
