The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess won the 2012 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical. Now it's going on the road with members of the Broadway cast, a 23-piece orchestra and new interpretations of legendary songs from the original Porgy and Bess, like "Summertime," "It Ain't Necessarily So" and "I Got Plenty of Nothing." Porgy and Bess debuted in 1935 as a groundbreaking opera starring an entire cast of classically trained African-American singers performing the classical, jazz and folk music of George and Ira Gershwin. Now, the stirring tale of African-American life in South Carolina's fictional Catfish Row has been transformed into a modern musical by a powerhouse Broadway team: Tony Award-winning director Diane Paulus (Pippin, Hair), Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog), and two-time Obie Award-winning composer Diedre L. Murray (Running Man). Learn More

Don’t miss a very special Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day performance as the Beijing Dance Academy—hailed as China’s Juilliard School in dance —comes to the U.S. to premiere _The Butterfly Lovers. _
Set to China’s most famous violin concerto, the legend of the Butterfly Lovers is China’s Romeo & Juliet, complete with intrigue, love and tragedy. The evening also includes a selection of award-winning pieces by some of China’s up and coming choreographers.
