    One of the few productions of "Porgy and Bess" to be released on video, this 1993 release is directed by the acclaimed stage director Trevor Nunn. With a stellar cast of performers including Willard White, Cynthia Haymon, and Gregg Baker, Nunn injects new life into the classic Gershwin opera. The London Philharmonic and The Glyndebourne Chorus add wonderful accompaniment to this historic black musical. The romance and beauty of this tender story, its dramatic development, and the sheer vitality of the characters come alive in this exciting visual production.
