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.
