Considered by many to be America’s greatest opera, Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, a stirring 1935 work based on librettist DuBose Heyward’s novel about a disabled beggar in a poor African American section of Charleston, brought forth such classic songs as "Summertime," "It Ain’t Necessarily So," and "Bess, and You Is My Woman Now." This captivating concert version features highlights led by Joel Revzen. The outstanding Festival Orchestra NAPA is joined by two sensational singers: dramatic baritone Lester Lynch, celebrated for his charismatic portrayals and commanding voice; and soprano Angel Blue, a protégé of Plácido Domingo recognized for her beautiful timbre.
