OPERA OVERVIEW

The Gershwin®s PORGY AND BESS®
by George Gershwin, DuBose and Dorothy Heyward and Ira Gershwin

COMPANY PREMIERE!
The unlikely love of Porgy and Bess is challenged by both Crown and Sportin’ Life, but the real protagonists are the people of Charleston’s Catfish Row. Gershwin’s music indelibly tells their story in the great American opera.

Co-production with Opera Carolina.
