George GERSHWIN Porgy and Bess

 

The American opera “Porgy and Bess” is unique in its genre, a masterful fusion of classical, jazz and folk music. First performed in 1935, it has become an acclaimed, iconic and timeless work that reflects human diversity and passions.

With a story set in Catfish Row, a tenement in Charleston, South Carolina, “Porgy and Bess” takes us into a vibrant world, brimming with life and deep emotions. It offers us unforgettable characters such as Porgy, a disabled man who fights to find love and dignity, and Bess, a woman trapped in a world of conflict and temptations.

With virtuoso performances of “Summertime”, “It Ain’t Necessarily So” and “I Got Plenty O’ Nuttin'”, showcasing the improvisational skills of Marco Mezquida, each note will take us into the deep soul of human experience.

Let yourself be swept away by this magical musical trip. Experience the passion and emotion of “Porgy and Bess”, and celebrate the genius of George Gershwin. Get ready for an unforgettable evening of melodies that have become timeless classics.
