Porgy and Bess Tickets

Porgy and Bess is a collaboration among George Gershwin, DuBose Heyward, and Ira Gershwin based on Heyward's novel and play, both named Porgy. The work is known as an "American folk opera," integrating blues and jazz into the classical opera genre. The most popular and well-known song from the show is "Summertime," sung by a young mother as a lullaby to her child at the beginning of the musical. The song has been recorded roughly 15,000 times over the years, by the likes of Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and more. The most recent Broadway production, which opened in January 2012 and closed September 23, 2012, was nominated for ten Tony Awards, winning Best Revival of a Musical and Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical (Audra McDonald). You can enjoy "Summertime" and the rest of the score with Porgy and Bess tickets.
