Met Summer Encore: Porgy and Bess
NR 3h 10m Special Event
The Metropolitan Opera's smash-hit production of The Gershwins's Porgy and Bess returns to select cinemas this summer. Recorded live from the Met in 2020, the acclaimed staging transports audiences to Catfish Row, a setting vibrant with the music, dancing, emotion, and heartbreak of its inhabitants - and includes several numbers that have become American standards, including the classic "Summertime." The phenomenal cast, orchestra, and chorus of the Met's Porgy and Bess also brought home the 2021 Grammy Award for Best Opera Recording.
