Porgy and Bess is an opera with music by George Gershwin, libretto by DuBose
Heyward, and lyrics by Ira Gershwin and Heyward. The first version of the opera was performed at Carnegie Hall in 1935.
It was based on Heyward's novel Porgy and the play of the same name that he co-wrote with his wife Dorothy. All three works deal with African American life in the fictitious Catfish Row in Charleston, South Carolina in the early 1930s. The opera is admired for Gershwin's innovative synthesis of European orchestral techniques with American jazz and folk music idioms. Order your Porgy and Bess Tickets online today!
