Porgy & Bess Opera Excursion
Porgy, a crippled beggar, and Bess, an outcast, find love in the African-American enclave of Catfish Row. This greatest American opera contains many arias which have become part of the Great American Songbook. And the characters in Gershwin’s finest work touch the heart as they struggle to survive in 1920s Charleston. On Thursday evening we will explore the opera, its characters, music, and the very modern themes it contains. On Saturday we will travel to the Greenville Grande Theater to see a live high-definition broadcast of Porgy & Bess from the Metropolitan Opera. Registration fee includes lecture, transportation, and ticket to Porgy & Bess. Register & pay online.
