This audio recording captures the Met’s historic—and hugely acclaimed—new production of the Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess, which brought America’s favorite opera back to the Met stage after a 30-year absence.

The ideal cast is headlined by Eric Owens and Angel Blue as the title characters, alongside Latonia Moore, Golda Schultz, Alfred Walker, Frederick Ballentine, and Denyce Graves.

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.
