Seattle Opera: Porgy and Bess

Past event

Wednesday, August 15, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Seattle Opera

McCaw Hall, Seattle, WA

The great American opera boasts some of the best songs ever written – including “Summertime,” “I Got Plenty O’ Nuttin’,” “I Loves You, Porgy,” and “It Ain’t Necessarily So.” The Seattle Opera’s unabridged presentation retains all of the rhapsodic orchestral music and superb choral writing that enchanted sell-out McCaw Hall crowds in 2011. The vibrant mix of action, humor, romance, struggle, and celebration returns with a “perfect” (ClassicsToday.com) new staging that will inspire you to “rise up singing.” Don’t miss this fully-staged Glimmerglass co-production that Bachtrack calls “an overall theatrical and musical success, proving one more time that Gershwin’s opus remains America’s most important 20th-century opera.”

In English with English subtitles. Performance time: 3 hours and 15 minutes, including 1 intermission.
