Details

Porgy & Bess presented by Met Opera will be screened at Bridlington's Spotlight Theatre on Saturday 1st February at 5.55pm.

Set in 1920s South Carolina, Porgy and Bess is a thought provoking, gritty and spirited ‘folk opera’.

When Bess is abandoned by her lover, the only person who shows her kindness is the crippled beggar Porgy.

They commit to a new life together, but the destructive forces of her violent ex-lover Crown and her drug dealer Sportin’ Life work against Bess to pull the pair apart.

Composer George Gershwin, infuses a wonderful operatic score with jazz, gospel and blues influence, lush orchestral underscoring and big spiritual chorus numbers. and many songs which have become popular jazz and blues covers, including the well-known ‘Summertime’, ‘A Woman Is a Sometime Thing’, ‘I Got Plenty O Nuttin’ and ‘I loves you, Porgy’.
