Porgy & Bess

  • Volksoper Vienna Vienna (map)

Role: Crown

Conductor: Joseph Olefirowicz

The story of the Catfish Row beggar and his beloved is a milestone in the genre and, as America's most significant opera, has not been surpassed. The concert performances in February 2019 under the direction of Joseph R. Olefirowicz are - after a guest performance in 1952 and a self-production in 1965 - the third sign of life of the "Folk Opera" at the Volksoper. Hits like "Summertime" and "I Got Plenty O 'Nuttin" have become absolute classics of jazz.
