Porgy and Bess 3-CD, Tote & Poster (3-PC SET) – The Metropolitan Opera

This exclusive collection features everything you need to commemorate and celebrate 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 3-CD set is the live audio recording from September 23 and October 16, 2019, featuring an ideal cast headlined by Eric Owens and Angel Blue as the title characters, alongside Latonia Moore, Golda Schultz, Alfred Walker, Frederick Ballentine, and Denyce Graves.

Designed exclusively for the Met Opera Shop, the Porgy and Bess tote is a stand-out item in our collection, featuring the names of the principal characters in bold white letters on black 100% cotton canvas, plus the Metropolitan Opera logo in white and grey on the opposite side. It has durable black cotton canvas straps measuring 1 ½” wide x 10” long. Overall tote measurement is 14 ¾” wide x 16” high.

The poster is a reproduction of eminent American artist Kerry James Marshall’s captivating black and white illustration of the title couple, displayed on the façade of the Met during performances of the opera. It measures 25” wide by 40” high and is part of limited edition of only 500 copies.

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.
