Famous Love Stories: Porgy & Bess and Romeo & Juliet @ Victory Theatre

Victory Theatre Evansville, Indiana

Description

Experience two legendary and powerful love stories in one incredible night! Prokofiev’s electrifying and luscious music from Romeo & Juliet fuses with Gershwin’s poignant and quintessentially American Porgy & Bess to create an evening of sweeping emotion and drama.

Hear blues, jazz, spirituals, and classical music, in two radically different works that were surprisingly written in the same year!

Joined by the Evansville Philharmonic Chorus, our wonderful singers, Angela Brown and Reginald Smith, Jr. sing Gershwin’s classics like “Summertime” and “I Got Plenty of Nuttin’,” while Prokofiev’s “Balcony Scene” will move you to tears and “Death of Tybalt” will leave you speechless.
