Tong Chen, Guest Conductor
featuring soloists from University of Kentucky Opera Theatre

Inspired by the most powerful piece in the game of chess, this Queen-themed program explores how Queens, power and games have inspired composers. From the mysterious Queen of the Night aria from Mozart’s opera The Magic Flute, to the dynamic Queenie Pie from Duke Ellington’s unfinished opera, Queens Rule explores a range of repertoire. This program will also feature a partnership with University of Kentucky Opera Theatre. Stay tuned for additional events connected to this program diving deeper into the music of the Queen’s Gambit, based in Lexington, and also the history of Ellington’s Queenie Pie.
