Based on the DuBose Heyward novel Porgy and Bess tells the moving story of the cripple Porgy and the residents of Charleston's famed Catfish Row. Recognized as an American masterpiece, the story entwines pride, prejudice, pathos and passion through a jazz and blues influenced score. Porgy and Bess introduced classic Gershwin songs like Summertime, I Got Plenty of Nuttin' and It Ain't Necessarily So, as well as magnificent and enthralling choruses that stunned music and drama critics alike at its premiere in 1935.
