“One of the most important opera recordings of recent years” was Opera magazine’s verdict on this Porgy and Bess, which immortalised Glyndebourne Festival Opera’s first-ever production of Gershwin’s masterpiece. “Simon Rattle treats Porgy as one of the great opera scores of the 20th century… the entire performance bristles with a theatrical immediacy… The cast is a great one, led by Willard White, a dark-voiced, dignified, ultimately noble Porgy… and Cynthia Haymon’s lustrous Bess... This is a great souvenir of a great Glyndebourne event.”
