Former Football Star Morris Robinson Takes the Lead as 'Porgy' at La Scala, Nov. 13Former Football Star Morris Robinson Takes the Lead as 'Porgy' at La Scala, Nov. 13
by BWW News Desk - Feb 3, 2016

Gershwin's opera PORGY AND BESS returns to La Scala November 13-23, 2016 in a semi-scenic version with a conductor that will probably surprise many people: Nikolaus Harnoncourt. The interest of the Austrian maestro for this title dates back to an encounter that an uncle of his, a member of the Board of Directors of the  Metropolitan Museum, had with Gershwin, who had been profoundly struck by a meeting with Alban Berg in Vienna at the end of the 1920s and considered Porgy to be “his Wozzeck”. Inspired by this story, Harnoncourt has restored, thanks to the collaboration of the Gershwin Foundation, all of the original material from the premiere. We shall therefore be hearing the most authentic version of Porgy and Bess, including a great deal of music influenced by the European avant-garde that is usually struck out but which makes the opera much stronger and dramatic. It is directed by Philipp Harnoncourt, the cast includes Kristin Lewis, Pumeza Matshikiza and Angel Blue.   (more...)
