Opera “A Parking Lot for Hyacinths” debuts at BYU Aug. 9-10

An experimental opera filled with young energy, “A Parking Lot for Hyacinths” will make its debut at Brigham Young University Friday and Saturday, Aug. 9-10, at 7:30 p.m. in the Nelke Theatre of the Harris Fine Arts Center.

Tickets can be purchased at the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 422-4322 or at byuarts.com/tickets. The opera is for adults and children over the age of six

“A Parking Lot for Hyacinths” is the first opera presented by the Deseret Experimental Opera Company, an interdisciplinary collaboration between young composers, visual artists, singers, actors, instrumentalists and designers from across the country.

The new opera is a surreal exploration of youth, idealism and the search for authentic beauty in a fabricated environment.

A megafire induced over a century’s worth of erosion near Utah Lake — but there’s more to the story, say BYU scientists

October 22, 2021
In burned watersheds where the wildfire had consumed stabilizing vegetation and leaf litter, the rain had caused massive erosion. There was a 2,000-fold increase in sediment flux compared to unburned areas, creating a plume of ash and soil moving into Utah Lake that was visible from space.
