Take your family on an interactive journey through Duke Ellington’s DC! From U Street and the Howard Theatre to Anacostia — Kids groove along with singers and a live jazz trio to discover how a local hero influenced the Harlem Renaissance, helped shape the cultural history of D.C., and became an international star.  


We work with D.C. artists and communities to create innovative theater grounded in opera and song. We reimagine these forms, folding in an expanding range of aesthetic and cultural traditions. We are committed to excellence, creativity, and accessibility to our shared, multifaceted musical heritage, as exemplified by our regular Latinx cultural programs.
