A Conversation on Chevalier, the New Film

The new film Chevalier tells the true story of the celebrated 18th-century French Creole virtuoso violinist and composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. He knew Mozart, had a personal meeting with King George III and the Prince of Wales in London, and commissioned Haydn to compose the “Paris” symphonies. His many works include the opera The Anonymous Lover. Join us for a conversation about the film with Charles Vincent Burwell, composer; Marlon Daniel, conductor; Joe Neumaier, film critic for 710AM-WOR radio; and Marc A. Scorca, president/CEO of OPERA America.
