I am ordering this while my ears and eyes are full of this magnificent, emotion packed opera which I saw last weekend in NYC. I went to hear Audra McDonald who is simply the best singer alive and was thrilled by both her acting and singing. AND, the entire cast delivers wonderful performances. Gershwin's music is glorious and this production showcases it and also delivers a powerful story of life on Catfish Row in the 1930's. This is truly "America's Opera" and every American needs to see this production. If you can't do that, buy this CD!

I have seen this wonderful production on Broadway and I must say that I never get tired of hearing Gershwin's music. The blend of voices is so warm and full of color. This is a must buy but even more so it is a must see! It didn't get 10 Tony Noms for nothing! Love, Love, Love!
