WNO's critically acclaimed production, which received rave reviews in Los Angeles, Chicago, and San Francisco, is back! George Gershwin miraculously melds classical music, popular song, jazz, blues, and spirituals into iconic American songs like "Summertime," "I Got Plenty O' Nuttin'" and "Bess, You Is My Woman Now." This quintessential American masterpiece follows the story of a crippled beggar and the headstrong woman he loves. Porgy and Bess℠ is directed by Francesca Zambello and conducted by American music specialist John Mauceri.
