Here’s an operatic companion Valentine’s Day post: the love duet from George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, seen in a 1993 televised production directed by Trevor Nunn, with Cynthia Haymon as Bess and Willard White as Porgy.
This TV production was actually based on Nunn‘s 1986 stage production for the Glyndebourne Festival. Not sure how romantic it is necessarily, but I guess I’m a cynic. Give me 1950’s romance comics any day.
This is also my belated and paltry first post for Black History Month, which I have been totally slacking on! I’ll step my game back up folks, sorry about that.
