Classical 101.1 WRR Focus on the Arts: Fort Worth Opera’s production of an iconic Gershwin opera

The Fort Worth Opera is bringing Francesca Zambello’s acclaimed revival of Porgy and Bess to life on the stage of Bass Performance Hall! This beloved 20th century American classic by the Gershwins centers around the impoverished residents of the neighborhood of Catfish Row on the shores of Charleston, South Carolina. Tune in to this engaging conversation with soprano Indira Mahajan (playing Bess) and Thomas Cannon (playing Porgy) about why the work still resonates eight decades later.
