“One of the most important opera recordings of recent years” was Opera magazine’s verdict on this Porgy and Bess, which immortalized Glyndebourne Festival Opera’s first-ever production of Gershwin’s masterpiece. “Simon Rattle treats Porgy as one of the great opera scores of the 20th century.… The entire performance bristles with a theatrical immediacy…. The cast is a great one, led by Willard White, a dark-voiced, dignified, ultimately noble Porgy…and Cynthia Haymon’s lustrous Bess…. This is a great souvenir of a great Glyndebourne event.”

History

The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess

One of America’s favorite operas returns to the Met for the first time in nearly 30 years. James Robinson’s stylish production transports audiences to Catfish Row on the Charleston waterfront, vibrant with the music, dancing, emotion, and heartbreak of its inhabitants.

“If you’re going to stage Gershwin’s opera, this is how,” raved the Guardian when the new production premiered in London in 2018.

David Robertson conducts a dynamic cast, featuring the sympathetic duo of Eric Owens and Angel Blue in the title roles and an all-star ensemble that includes Golda Schultz, Latonia Moore, Denyce Graves, Frederick Ballentine, Alfred Walker, and Ryan Speedo Green.
