Met Opera Live: Porgy and Bess (12A) - National Science and Media Museum - Bradford

Experience a new production of the Gershwins’ modern American masterpiece.In the first Met performances of Porgy and Bess in almost three decades, bass-baritone Eric Owens and soprano Angel Blue star 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 regarded as one of the greatest American operas of the 20th century.
