The great American opera boasts some of the best songs ever written—including “Summertime,” “I Got Plenty O’ Nuttin’,” “I Loves You, Porgy,” and “It Ain’t Necessarily So,” alongside rhapsodic orchestral music and superb choral writing. Dozens of characters experience a gamut of emotions in this slice of life story set in Heywards’ fictional Catfish Row. Boldly combining action, humor, romance, struggle, and celebration, the Gershwins’ vibrant, one-of-a-kind masterpiece will inspire you to “rise up singing.”
“An overall theatrical and musical success, [Glimmerglass’s 2017] Porgy and Bess proves one more time that Gershwin’s opus remains America’s most important 20th-century opera.”– Bachtrack.com
