    July 25, 2019 – July 28, 2019

Presented by:
Cincinnati Opera
About the Event:

It was the biggest decision she'd ever made: She was coming clean. No more binges, no more waking up who-knows-where. He would be her happiness, now and forever. Morning time and evening time, he would be her strength. For only the second time ever, Cincinnati Opera will present the Gershwins’ great American opera Porgy and Bess on the Music Hall stage. Replete with hits including “Summertime” and “It Ain’t Necessarily So,” and a touching story of love and perseverance in adversity, it will be presented in a “vibrant” (Chicago Tribune) production by Francesca Zambello with costumes by Tony Award-winning Hamilton costume designer, Paul Tazewell. Grammy-nominated soprano Talise Trevigne makes her company debut as Bess with a voice that’s “high and rich and round“ (Washington Post). Bass Morris Robinson, praised for singing with “an extraordinary blend of power and fluidity” (San Francisco Chronicle), leads the cast as Porgy.
