Simon Rattle conducts “Porgy and Bess”
A love story as poignant as any Puccini opera, immortal melodies plus pulsating, swinging “street life”: George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess is the perfect fusion of musical and dramatic depth and entertainment. In what the reviews called an “exceptional event beyond compare”, Simon Rattle conducted the work in September 2012 with a first-class ensemble of singers headed by Willard White and Latonia Moore.
