Porgy and Bess part of Cincinnati Opera's Lineup
For the first time, Cincinnati Opera brings Porgy and Bess to their stage. Plan to go to Music Hall for this soaring music on June 28 and 30 or July 6 and 8. This is considered one of George Gershwin's most gritty and glorious masterpieces. It is called America's Great Folk Opera. It is filled with recognizable tunes, including "Summertime", one of my favorites.
Porgy and Bess is a remarkable story of perseverance in adversity and the triumph of love over all obstacles. Bess makes her biggest decision and ties her happiness to Porgy...morning and evening, he would be her strength. But life is rarely so simple!
