About Porgy and Bess
Bess’s love for Porgy saves her from her dark past with Crown. But old habits die hard. When Crown returns, will a new life with Porgy save Bess from herself?
More than 80 years after its premiere, Porgy and Bess receives its first ENO staging. Written for a large cast, with a 40-voice chorus specially formed for this production, and full orchestra, Porgy and Bess is infused with unforgettable melodies, including the much-loved ‘Summertime’. This is a stage work that is emotionally charged, powerful and moving, delivered through jazz, ragtime, blues and spirituals.
