Live from the Met: Porgy and Bess (Encore)

George Gershwin

Please note: This screening will not have subtitles, however the performance is in English.


Join us for an encore screening of the Gershwins’ modern American masterpiece, starring bass-baritone Eric Owens and soprano Angel Blue in the title roles.

"Largely regarded as one of the greatest American operas of the 20th century."

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.
