About this show

Porgy and Bess is recognized as an American masterpiece. A story that intertwines pride, prejudice, pathos, and passion through a jazz and blues influenced score. Originally billed as a "Folk Opera," Porgy and Bess introduces classic Gershwin songs including "Summertime," "I Got Plenty O' Nuttin,'" and "It Ain't Necessarily So," as well as magnificent and enthralling choruses that have stunned music and drama critics alike since its premiere in 1935.
