This operatic adaptation of Heyward’s play, Porgy and Bess follows the lives of the inhabitants of Catfish Row, an African-American section of Charleston, South Carolina. We follow the crippled Porgy and his beloved Bess, who is under the thrall of the dangerous Crown, and the sinewy drug dealer Sportin’ Life.
