Porgy and Bess is the longest and most ambitious creation by George Gershwin, and the only opera founded on 1920's and
'30s jazz that survived beyond WWII. The story is taken from a novel by DuBose Heyward, from Charleston, South Carolina.
The opera sadly did not find success during Gershwin's lifetime, but Porgy
and Bess tickets remain one of the defining moments in opera.
Porgy and Bess began to take form in the mind of George Gershwin in 1926, when he first read the story Porgy by DuBose
Heyward. It was almost ten years before he was actually able to begin work on the opera, which would be one of his final
creations. The story in the opera is about a crippled black man who falls in love with a woman, and what his passion for
her causes in his life.
