Met Opera Season 2019 – 2020
PORGY AND BESS
By The Gershwins’

Presented by Riverside Cinema


The Gershwins’ modern American masterpiece has its first Met performances in almost three decades, starring bass-baritone Eric Owens and soprano Angel Blue in the title roles. Director James Robinson’s stylish production transports audiences to Catfish Row, a setting vibrant with the music, dancing, emotion, and heartbreak of its inhabitants.

“Porgy and Bess is first and foremost a story of community, an idea that James Robinson’s handsome staging for the Met takes and runs with. That it succeeds so well is a tribute to the strength and depth of the casting and the vision of the creative team: Michael Yeargan (set), Catherine Zuber (costumes) and Donald Holder (lighting).” – Clive Paget, Limelight Magazine

Captured live on stage in New York and screened at Riverside.
