Porgy and Bess is probably the most famous and most successful American opera from the twentieth century. Based on DuBose Heyward’s novel, Porgy, and the play that was adapted from it by Heyward and his wife Dorothy, it has long been considered the crowning achievement in the stellar careers of all of the authors. Since its debut in 1935, the story of the crippled beggar transformed by his unexpected and improbable love for Bess, has been performed all over the world by theater and opera companies.
