Porgy and Bess at DNS

Duration: 1 h 30 min Intermissions: 1
Location: Den Nationale Scene Ticket prices: 150-350
Premiere: 04. Feb 2019 Running period: 04. Feb 2019

Bergen National Opera presents, in collaboration with Den Nationale Scene, an evening of songs like “Summertime” and other favourites.

Two of our star performers in recent years have been soprano Latonia Moore and baritone Lester Lynch - most recently with us as Desdemona and Jago in BNO's memorable Otello. For their DNS recital, we're thrilled that they will sing excerpts from Porgy and Bess - signature roles for them both - along with other arias. Stephen Higgins, another BNO favourite, is pianist.

Programme:
4th February 2019 at 8PM (SOLD OUT - OUR NEXT OPERA IS WERTHER)
