Pittsburgh Opera will present the first-ever Pittsburgh performances of “Charlie Parker’s Yardbird,” based on the life of the legendary jazz musician, from April 10 to April 22.

The company will have live, socially-distant audiences for the performances at its headquarters in the Strip District. All six performances are sold out, but a waiting list is available. The April 16 performance will be livestreamed free of charge on both the Pittsburgh Opera’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
