Porgy and Bess

The Gershwins’
February 01 - 02 Ticket Info

The Gershwins’ modern American masterpiece returns to the Met for the first time in almost three decades. It may be February, but it will feel like “Summertime.”

Met Opera in HD

America’s “folk opera,” as the 1935 creators described it, tells the story of disabled beggar Porgy, sung by Eric Owens, and his love for the drug-addicted Bess, portrayed by Angel Blue. 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 stellar cast includes Donovan Singletary as fisherman Jake, Golda Schultz as his wife Clara, Latonia Moore as the bereaved widow Serena, Frederick Ballentine as drug dealer Sportin’ Life, Alfred Walker as the brutal stevedore Crown and Denyce Graves as Maria, town matriarch and operator of the local cook-shop. David Robertson conducts.
