Gershwin's thrilling jazz opera is marked by the complexion of its music and language making this unmistakably American-flavoured blend a masterpiece within its genre, as it combines elements of traditional African American jazz, blues and Native American music. At the same time, the songs seem to be born the very moment they are performed.
The production stars two of America's most renowned opera singers who will turn the performance on Margeret Island into an unforgettable experience. We are proud to welcome Laquita Mitchell as Bess and Kenneth Overton as Porgy as they give their debut in Hungary.
Completed by a Symphony Orchestra, an enourmous choir and a magnificent visual world, this exhilerating show is all but limited to opera fans: Jazz lovers should get ready for an abundance of musical highlights,
