Tim Murray – Porgy in Barcelona!

timMurray_085Having already conducted Cape Town Opera’s smash hit production of Porgy and Bess, set in the township of Soweto in the 1970s, at the Opéra National de Bordeaux, in London’s Coliseum and at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff, MKAM’s Tim Murray is about conduct his first performance of this production in Barcelona’s legendary Liceu opera theatre.  This is not Tim’s first engagement at the Liceu, because he has already conducted a well-received production of Kurt Weill’s Street Scene at the theatre.  But Porgy is very special and Tim is excited about conducting Gershwin’s masterpiece with the Liceu orchestra and Cape Town Opera’s fabulous choir and soloists.

 The 11 performances run from 11th to 19th July and Tim will conduct them all.  If you would like see it, there are still some tickets left!
