About

This is the first live recording of the Gershwins' Porgy and Bess on DVD!

George Gershwin miraculously melded classical idioms, jazz, blues and spirituals in this quintessentially American masterpiece about a crippled beggar, the headstrong woman he loves, and the community that sustains them both.

Eric Owens (Porgy) and Laquita Mitchell (Bess) lead an amazing cast, pulling the audience into the intricate world of Catfish Row.

The performance is led by internationally acclaimed conductor John DeMain, whose recording of Porgy and Bess in 1976 won a Grammy and remains a benchmark in the interpretation of this masterpiece

Includes interviews with artists and creative team as a bonus (29 mins).

Recorded live in High Definition at the War Memorial Opera House, San Francisco, 2009.
