Opéra National de Paris
PORGY AND BESS
JULY 7 - AUGUST 21, 2017
George Gershwin/DuBose Heyward & Ira Gershwin
Set in Catfish Row by the shores of Charleston, South Carolina, George Gershwin's classic "folk opera" deals with the attempt of Porgy, a disabled beggar, to create a home for himself and Bess, a young woman whose troubled past threatens to consume her present. Porgy and Bess is one of the pillars of the American opera repertory, with unforgettable melodies including “Summertime,” “Bess, You Is My Woman Now,” and “I Got Plenty o’ Nuttin.’"
Presented in English with projected English text.
This production is generously sponsored by Eugene and Jean Stark.
