Porgy and Bess
‘Porgy and Bess’ is a key example of the greatness American Opera has achieved in emerging from the shadow of its European roots.
A star studded all-black cast joins the SFSO, presenting a bold mix of modernist classics, ragtime, blues, jazz and spirituals, included, are the great Gershwin standards that reach notably eloquent, heartfelt, and genre-crossing heights.
