The production was also seen in cinemas around the world on 1 February as part of the Met’s Live in HD series and was one of the most successful transmissions in the series’s history. Seen live on more than 1,900 screens in nearly 60 countries, the opera reached an estimated 191,095 people. And with delayed showings in Australia, Bermuda, Denmark, India, Jamaica, Japan, Korea, New Zealand and South Africa – as well as encore performances in North America and Europe – worldwide attendance of The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess will surely reach more than 325,000.
