Description

American Operas (6 DVD Box Set)

This magnificent DVD-Box includes 3 incredible American works for the lyric stage from San Francisco Opera: Moby Dick, Show Boat and Porgy and Bess.

MOBY DICK: Herman Melville’s epic tale of a fierce, obsessive whaling-boat captain who descends into madness and puts his crew in mortal danger.

SHOW BOAT: An enduring love story set against a backdrop of racial prejudice, Show Boat gave birth to the American musical. Featuring such songbook classics as “Ol’ Man River” and “Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man”, this is a stylish, exuberant production from San Francisco Opera.

PORGY & BESS: George Gershwin miraculously melded classical idioms, jazz, blues and spirituals in this quintessentially American masterpiece about a crippled beggar, the headstrong woman he loves, and the community that sustains them both.

REPERTOIRE:
George and Ira Gershwin, DuRose and Dorothy Heyward: Porgy & Bess; Jake Heggie, Gene Scheer: Moby Dick; Jerome Kern, Oscar Hammerstein, Edna Ferber: Show Boat
