Eric Owens and Angel Blue as Porgy and Bess
(Paola Kudacki/Met Opera)


George and Ira Gershwin's seminal American opera returns to the Met stage for the first time in nearly three decades, starring Eric Owens and Angel Blue in the title roles.

A supremely American operatic masterpiece and one of the last and most ambitious works by one of the nation's greatest musical talents, Porgy and Bess focuses on the joys and struggles of a black neighborhood in Charleston, South Carolina, in the early 20th century.  The opera's score features a rich cache of individual arias, many of which have become classics of the Great American Songbook.
