Porgy and Bess
Wed 4 - Sat 7 July 2012
Don't miss this rare chance to see George Gershwin's universally loved 'people's opera', Porgy and Bess, which has emerged as one of the great icons of American music theatre.
Featuring unforgettable and uplifting songs including Summertime, I Got Plenty of Nuttin' and It Ain't Necessarily So, this enduring masterpiece is brought thrillingly to life by Cape Town Opera, whose vibrant and moving production - transplanted to the townships of South Africa - has received ecstatic reviews around the world.
The Gershwins'® Porgy and Bess℠ - opera in three acts by George Gershwin, DuBose and Dorothy Heyward and Ira Gershwin.
"On the strength of its glorious Gershwin, Cape Town Opera should be invited back - soon and often."
- The Times
"Gershwin's score is a feast, and Cape Town Opera serves it up proud."
- The Telegraph
