Mercedes Ellington, granddaughter of legendary musician Duke Ellington, is a noted performer and was choreographer for the highly acclaimed musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, Play On!. Among other things, she’ll talk about her work on the cross-genre staging of Such Sweet Thunder, a suite in which instruments become characters from Shakespeare’s plays. Originally created by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn, Such Sweet Thunder is being presented by Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra at the Kennedy Center on May 20.
