Earl Hazell in Porgy and Bess at Fort Worth Opera
April 4 - May 2
Considered one of the most important operas written in the 20th century, George Gershwin’s beloved Porgy and Bess has captivated audiences across the globe for over 80 years. This season, opera director Garnett Bruce brings Francesca Zambello’s acclaimed revival of Porgy and Bess to life on the stage of Bass Performance Hall, with spectacular new scenery created by British set designer Peter J. Davison. Based upon DuBose Heyward’s 1925 novel Porgy, the opera follows the impoverished residents of the neighborhood of Catfish Row on the shores of Charleston, South Carolina.
