Reviews

After the huge success of the Glyndebourne production of Porgy and Bess, EMI took the whole cast to the Shepperton Studios, where it was produced for video by Trevor Nunn and Yves Baignere, using the giant stage to move the actions around freely as in a film. The result is stunningly successful, bringing the story to life with extraordinary vivdness. This is one of the most creative of all such productions so far, fully worthy of Gershwin’s masterly score.
