Porgy and Bess

Don't miss George Gershwin's beloved folk opera Porgy and Bess as live broadcast from the Met on February 1 at Jönköpings Theatre.

Porgy and Bess is back at Met for the first time since 1990 in a new set directed by James Robinson. This "folk opera", which the authors described in 1935, is the story of the disabled beggar, Porgy (Eric Owens) and his love for the drug addict Bess (Angel Blue).

The opera is filled with beloved classics such as Summertime, It Ain't Necessarily So, Bess, You Is My Woman Now, Got Plenty and Nuttin, and My Man's Gone Now. Among other opera stars, Donovan Singletary is noted as fisherman Jake, Golda Schultz as his wife Clara and Latonia Moore as widow Serena.
