Opera on Screen: Porgy & Bess

OCT 4 & NOV 8

Portland Opera and OMSI are collaborating to present our second season of Opera on Screen, a series of film screenings featuring recent productions from the San Francisco Opera, with a special introduction by a Portland Opera staff member.
Porgy and Bess is the Gershwin brothers’ miraculously melded work of classical music, popular song, jazz, blues and spirituals. This quintessentially American masterpiece tells the poignant story of a crippled beggar, the headstrong woman he loves, and the community that sustains them both. Eric Owens and Laquita Mitchell star in the title roles. Porgy and Bess is sung in English with English subtitles.

Duration: 158 mins. | Intermission: 15 mins. | Rating: Ages 13+
