From July 2nd to July 7th, at the Regio Theater in Turin, will take place the work of George Gershwin Porgy and Bess. This is one of the most interpreted and staged composers.
For seven stage performances this 1935 masterpiece will stage the New York Harlem Theater with the Regio Theater Orchestra, directed by William Barkhymer, the Artistic and Musical Director of the Company. The choir will be directed by Richard Cordova and directed by Baayork Lee.
just like the musician of her composer, born in New York by Russian immigrants, enthusiastic about Debussy, Ravel and after the big European school, Porgy and Bess fled the label in a particular genre or style. Opera, but with elements of music, jazz, spirituality, folk song, so within what can be called “chosen” music. The most famous part of this work is ‘Summertime’.
The copyright for this opera were given by the Gershwin family.
