Great Performances-Porgy and Bess

Great Performances from The Met is broadcasting Porgy and Bess. This timeless Gershwin classic is given a full-fledged opera version. Whether you’ve seen previous incarnations of the piece as a Broadway musical or a hybrid opera/musical, you are in for a treat. The complexity of the score and the lush arrangements are always a joy to behold. And with each viewing or listening the nuances are mind boggling. If you are unable to see this recent version I have attached a link to the Lincoln Center production from 2002.
