Long Beach Opera is collaborating with the Museum of African American Art for a glamorous afternoon of art, jazz and dessert as we gear up for Ellington's only opera. A guided museum tour of the Palmer Hayden collection, Ellington song standards, an introduction to the Harlem Renaissance and Queenie Pie opera excerpts are paired with bubbly drinks and pie (what else?) for our spectacular tribute to an American icon and a rich era of art, literature and music. Tickets are available through the box office (562.432.4934) or at the door.
