MET OPERA: The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess

MET OPERA: The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess

The Gershwins' modern American masterpiece has its first Met performance in almost three decades, starring bass baritone Eric Owens and soprano Angel Blue in the title roles.

This new co-production with English National Opera and Dutch National Opera was hailed as a triumph at its premiere in London earlier this year. Featuring the much-loved arias 'Summertime' and 'I Got Plenty o' Nuttin'', director James Robinson's stylish production transports audiences to Catfish Row, a setting vibrant with the music, dancing, emotion and heartbreak of its inhabitants.

The final stage work of George Gershwin, Porgy and Bess is largely regarded as one of the greatest American operas of the 20th Century.
