“Queenie Pie,” Chicago

Jazz musician Duke Ellington is known for his classic songs "Mood Indigo," "Sophisticated Lady" and "Satin Doll,” but what about his contributions to opera? The Chicago Opera Theater is highlighting Ellington’s “Queenie Pie” with a performance of the piece blended with other songs. The show starts on Feb. 15. For more information, visit here
