About The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess

One of America’s favourite operas returns to the Metropolitan Opera House for the first time in nearly three decades. Following a community in South Carolina, listen to the Gershwin’s iconic soundtrack featuring ‘Summertime’ and ‘My Man’s Gone Now’. “If you’re going to stage Gershwin’s opera, this is how,” raved the Guardian when the new production premiered in London in 2018. Now’s your chance to see this production come to life once again at the Met in New York.

Transporting audiences to Catfish Row on the Charleston waterfront, the 2018 London production transfers to Broadway in a show that’s bouncing with life.

The running time is 3 hours and 15 minutes, including an interval of 35 minutes.

Sung in English with Met Titles in English, German and Spanish.
