About Porgy And Bess


Porgy and Bess was first performed in September 1935 at Colonial Theater and then eventually in October 1935 at Alvin Theater.. This opera is based on the novel of acclaimed writer DuBose Heyward. They lyrics and libretto have also been written by Heyward with Ira Gershwin co-writing the lyrics and George Gershwin composing the music. The play premiered in New York featuring and surprisingly featured a cast of all African-American singers that were trained in classical singing. This was a daring act on part of Gershwin and he even hired Eve Jessye an African-American musician for the opera’s choral direction. Porgy and Bess is termed a classic and is regularly performed around the world. The music of it is unique as Gershwin has experimented by intricately blending American folk and jazz music with European orchestral techniques.
 
This is a three act play that is set in slums of the famous city of South Carolina called Charleston. The play tells the story of a disabled African-American disabled beggar called Porgy who tries to save Bess from the wrath of her lover Sportin ’Life, who happens to be a drug dealer and very sadistic and domineering. Some of the most famous songs used in the opera are “Summertime”, “It Ain’t Necessarily So”, “I Got Plenty ‘o Nuttin”, ”A Woman is a Sometime Thing”, “Bess You is My Woman Now”, “What you want wid Bess”, “I Loves You Porgy”, “A Red-Haired Woman” and “There’s a Boat Dat’s Leavin Soon for New York”.
 
The original Broadway cast of 1935 included Todd Duncan as Porgy (bass-baritone), Anne Brown as Bess (soprano), Warren Coleman as Crown (baritone), John Bubbles as Sportin’ Life (tenor), Henry Davis as Robbins (tenor), Rosamond Johnson as Frazier the black lawyer (baritone), Helen Dowdy as Lily (mezzo-soprano), Edward Mathews as the fisherman Jack (baritone), Georgette Harvey as cook-shop keeper Maria (contralto), Jack Carr as cotton picker Jim (baritone) and John Garth as Undertaker (baritone).
 
In 1942 Porgy and Bess had a Broadway revival in 1942 at the Majestic Theater.  The very next year a European Premier took place in Copenhagen at the Royal Danish Theater. In 1952 London Premier took place with some fine actors like William Warfield, Cab Calloway and Leontyne Price. In 1976 a Houston Grand Opera production was done that won a Grammy Award as well as a Tony Award. Just recently two more versions have been performed namely The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess (Nunn adaptation) in 2006 and The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess (Paulus adaptation). 
 
The music of Porgy and Bess has been a source of inspiration for many famous composers and singers. Australian pianist and composer Percy Grainger composed a music piece to tribute Gershwin and it was called Fantasy on George Gershwin’s “Porgy and Bess”. Musicians Gil Evans and Miles Davis made jazz arrangements of Porgy and Bess. Immensely popular pop singer Christina Aguilera also performed one song at the Grammy Nominations Concert called “I Loves You, Porgy”.
