Metropolitan Opera Adventures with Mike Cascia

Mike will lecture on Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess.

The libretto of Porgy and Bess tells the story of Porgy, a disabled black street-beggar living in the slums of Charleston. It deals with his attempts to rescue Bess from the clutches of Crown, her violent and possessive lover, and Sportin' Life, her drug dealer.
