BWW Review: Gershwin's PORGY & BESS Returns to the Met with a Grand Bess in Angel Blu Photo BWW Review: Gershwin's PORGY & BESS Returns to the Met with a Grand Bess in Angel Blue
by Richard Sasanow - Nov 6, 2021

There are so many things to like about the season‚Äôs revival of Gershwin‚Äôs PORGY & BESS, which was new in the 2019-2020 season, before Covid became the ‚Äúsong‚ÄĚ that no one wanted to hear. PORGY on the other hand, is the music that everybody can take a liking to, with its fluid combination of opera, Broadway musical and versions of spirituals and Gullah folk music that nobody ever heard before. It has been best known for its songs, which have become ‚Äústandards‚ÄĚ in the Broadway songbook. The stylistic shifts in the complex, yearning, comic score are handled mightily by the Met‚Äôs game orchestra under David Robinson.
