Porgy & Bess - A Charleston Story


Led by Porgy and Bess scholar Harlan Greene, many aspects of the book, play, and opera and their roots in Lowcountry South Carolina are explored by local and national experts. Contributors include Harlan Greene, Damon L. Fordham, Karen A. Chandler, Jennifer Scott, and Pamela S. Wall. Porgy & Bess: A Charleston Story provides insight not only into one of America’s greatest operas but also into, as DuBose Heyward called Charleston, the “ancient, beautiful city that time had forgotten.”
