Yardbird, Atlanta Opera


Acclaimed jazz saxophonist and composer Charlie Parker loved music, drugs, and women. He lived fast and died young, leaving an incredible legacy of jazz music in his short time.

Yardbird tells a not-quite-true story of Parker composing his final masterpiece while in the thin veil between life and death, reflecting on the women who influenced him and made him the master musician he was.

Le Maison Rouge at Paris on Ponce transforms into Parker’s Birdland nightclub to immerse you fully in this fast-paced 90 minute jazz opera, leaving you breathless and wanting more.
