Gershwin’s opera Porgy and Bess was first performed in Boston in September 1935, before it moved to Broadway in New York City. Despite an initially unpopular public reception, it is now one of the best-known and most frequently performed operas. The concert version, arranged by Robert Russell Bennett, features the very best music from the opera including Summertime and It Ain’t Necessarily So.
