MB1800 is proud to present the NYC premier of this global touring production, featuring our first-ever collaboration with our neighbors, The Harlem Chamber Players, in a landmark performance at the sumptuous United Palace on 175th St.
The Chevalier tells the incredible true story of Joseph Bologne, the composer, conductor, abolitionist, fencer, and hero of the French Revolution. Commissioned by The Tanglewood Music Center, this original work of concert-theatre combines orchestra with actors who portray W. A. Mozart, Marie Antoinette, Bologne, and Choderlos de Laclos as they navigate the gathering clouds of revolution in 1778 Paris.
