In that empty twilight between life and death, tortured jazzman Charlie Parker composes his final masterpiece, revisiting the inspirations, demons, and women who fueled his creative genius. This freeform expedition into the mind, heart, and personal purgatory of the bebop great stars Lawrence Brownlee as the legendary saxophonist — a role crafted around the effortless, improvisational style that makes him one of music’s most sought-after tenors. Set in the famed NYC jazz club Birdland, the opera is as uncompromising in its artistic vision as the “Yardbird” himself.

Charlie Parker’s Yardbird is presented in partnership with the Harris Theater.
