The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess

8/11/2018 through 8/25/2018 | Marion Oliver McCaw Hall

Music Queen Anne/Seattle Center

The great American opera boasts some of the best songs ever written –
including “Summertime”,”I Got Plenty Of Nuttin”,”I Loves You, Porgy”, and “It Ain’t Necessarily So”, alongside rhapsodic orchestral music and superb choral writing. Dozens of characters experience a gamut of emotions in this slice of life story set in Heywards fictional Catfish Row. Boldly combining action, humor, romance, struggle, and celebration, the Gershwins’ vibrant, one-of-a-kind masterpiece will inspire you to rise up singing. Presented by Seattle Opera at McCaw Hall.
