About Porgy and Bess
It was the biggest decision she’d ever made: She was coming clean. No more binges, no more waking up who-knows-where. He would be her happiness, now and forever. Morning time and evening time, he would be her strength.
Replete with hits including “Summertime” and “It Ain’t Necessarily So,” and a touching story of love and perseverance in adversity, it will be presented in a “vibrant” (Chicago Tribune) production by Francesca Zambello with costumes by Tony Award-winning Hamilton costume designer, Paul Tazewell. Grammy-nominated soprano Talise Trevigne makes her company debut as Bess with a voice that’s “high and rich and round” (Washington Post). Bass Morris Robinson, praised for singing with “an extraordinary blend of power and fluidity” (San Francisco Chronicle), leads the cast as Porgy.
