2006 Porgy and Bess Recording?#1
Posted: 2/21/07 at 1:44am
I did a search, and was surprised there was no thread about a CD of the new London Porgy and Bess production. Does anyone know if it was recorded or will be, for a commercial release? Would love to hear it. Is the show doing well over there?

Thanks

When I went to see it a couple a weeks ago, I asked for it and I was replied that if the show goes on running for more than a year maybe they would think about recording the show ! Long live "Porgy and Bess" then !

There was a demo of selected songs recorded last summer - that is probably what is being played on the radio. Sorry to hear that the cast recording is in question, though.
