“Dazzling and remarkable!” - San Jose Mercury News
George Gershwin miraculously melded classical music, popular song, jazz, blues, and spirituals in this quintessentially American masterpiece that tells the poignant story of a crippled beggar and the headstrong woman he loves. San Francisco Chronicle praised Francesca Zambello’s production as a “powerful Porgy and Bess . . . Eric Owens brings dramatic sensitivity to the part of Porgy, while Laquita Mitchell gives an evocative performance as Bess.” Recorded in HD, in 2009, and sung in English with English subtitles.Artist Website Video Photos
