What’s New at Seattle Opera

Upcoming Production: The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess
August 11-25, 2018 at McCaw Hall

The great American opera boasts some of the best songs ever written—including “Summertime,” “I Got Plenty O’ Nuttin’,” “I Loves You, Porgy,” and “It Ain’t Necessarily So.” Our unabridged presentation retains all of the rhapsodic orchestral music and superb choral writing that enchanted sell-out McCaw Hall crowds in 2011. The vibrant mix of action, humor, romance, struggle, and celebration returns with a “perfect” ( new staging that will inspire you to “rise up singing.”

Don’t miss this fully-staged Glimmerglass co-production that Bachtrack calls “an overall theatrical and musical success, proving one more time that Gershwin’s opus remains America’s most important 20th-century opera.”
