The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess presented by The Metropolitan Opera: HD Live  

New Production

The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess returns to the Met for the first time since 1990, in a new production directed by James Robinson in his company debut. America’s “folk opera,” as the 1935 creators described it, tells the story of disabled beggar Porgy, sung by Eric Owens, and his love for the drug-addicted Bess, portrayed by Angel Blue.

Estimated run time: 3 hours, 40 minutes
