3. The music material chosen by the composer George Gershwin to create the opera is diverse, based on jazz and blues motifs, African-American folklore and improvisation. So this is no ordinary opera where classical music sounds, as we used to. It's a bit more interesting;)
Porgy and the Bess is George Gershwin's opera in four acts and nine paintings. It was first put in 1935. It did not enjoy much success at first, but since the 1950s it began to gain widespread popularity in the United States and later around the world.
Porgy and the Bess is one of the pinnacles of George Gershwin's work. You will soon be able to see an opera concert performed by the Opéra HUB at our Urban Music Hall!
