Charlie Parker’s Yardbird

Make no mistake – this IS opera!
The story starts immediately following the death of jazz great, Charlie Parker. “The whole opera is about the dream of Charlie Parker to bridge two worlds (of classical and jazz music)…” writes composer Daniel Schnyder. With the aid of his strong mother Addie, three of his four wives, and his partner in the bebop jazz revolution, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie struggles to calm his demons and write his final masterpiece.
