Event occured on Sat, Feb 15 2014, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm CST
Repeats every 2 weeks on Sunday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday until Wednesday, March 05, 2014

Duke Ellington's only opera roars with big band sound in this raucous affair fusing hot jazz with cool blues. This story follows a Harlem belle in her quest for everlasting fame, showcasing a woman's ambition to keep her title and her beau. Prestige, beauty, and racial divides are not the only make-over in "Queenie Pie," a Chicago premiere and collaboration with the Chicago Jazz Orchestra. This hidden gem in the Duke's repertoire is a seldom-performed rarity, so catch it while you can at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance. Performance dates are 7:30 p.m. Feb. 15 and 21; 3 p.m. Feb. 23 and 7:30 p.m. March 5. Call for more information, to reserve seats, or inquire about group sales.
