Performing Arts trip for Black History Month: Porgy and Bess at the English National Opera

We are organising a visit to see landmark opera Porgy and Bess at ENO on the evening of Monday 29th October in order to celebrate Black History Month.

" More than 80 years after its premiere, Porgy and Bess receives its first ENO staging. Written for a large cast, with a 40-voice chorus specially formed for this production, and full orchestra, Porgy and Bess is infused with unforgettable melodies, including the much-loved ‘Summertime’. This is a stage work that is emotionally charged, powerful and moving, delivered through jazz, ragtime, blues and spirituals. "

The cost of this trip is £10, plus you will need a Zip card. This trip is open to all students and tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. If you are interested, please come to the Performing Arts office to collect a letter.
