The Lander Library and the Fremont County Library Foundation bring the Met Opera to Lander by streaming the live performances in high definition in the Lander Library’s Carnegie Room. This Saturday, Feb. 1st enjoy Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess at 10:55 am. Met Opera performances are always open to the public and donations are greatly appreciated to help support the continuation of this great theatrical opportunity in our community.
About the production:
James Robinson’s stylish production transports audiences to Catfish Row on the Charleston waterfront, vibrant with the music, dancing, emotion, and heartbreak of its inhabitants. “If you’re going to stage Gershwin’s opera, this is how,” raved the Guardian when the new production premiered in London in 2018. David Robertson conducts a dynamic cast, featuring the sympathetic duo of Eric Owens and Angel Blue in the title roles and an all-star ensemble that includes Golda Schultz, Latonia Moore, Denyce Graves, Frederick Ballentine, and Alfred Walker.
