Sophisticated Ladies

The musical legacy of “The Duke” is celebrated in Duke Ellington’s SOPHISTICATED LADIES, a stylish and brassy retrospective that has taken audiences and critics alike by storm throughout the world. Winner of two Tony Awards, SOPHISTICATED LADIES is a glorious re-creation of the Duke Ellington big band sound and features all his most famous numbers, from the infamous Speak Easy era of the Cotton Club up to his death, including “It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing,” “Take the ‘A’ Train,” “Satin Doll,” and the haunting “In a Sentimental Mood.” Featuring The Atlanta Lyric Orchestra and some of the metro area’s most talented performers, this song and dance extravaganza is an abundance of riches from the most sophisticated and sassy jazz king of them all!
