Administrative History

The Brigham Young University Opera Company (active 1905-1914) was a university performing group in Provo, Utah.

The B.Y.U. Opera Company was directed by Anthony C. Lund, and presented an opera annually. Productions included "The Beggar Student," "Boccaccio," "Maritana," and "The Sun Dance." The Department of Music continued to present operas after 1914, though these were not referred to as being produced by the Brigham Young University Opera Company.
