Travel today to our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., and spend a delightful afternoon with the Washington National Opera: “Porgy and Bess” at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.  Gershwin’s quintessential American masterpiece melds jazz, folk, and gospel styles.  It’s “summertime, and the livin’ is easy” in Catfish Row, a working-class fishing town in South Carolina.  When a murder shakes the community and tempts the strong headed Bess to return to her drug-filled past, Porgy, a crippled beggar, becomes her unlikely refuge.  As a hurricane descends and Bess’s brutish old flame returns, she’ll find herself torn between Porgy’s steadfast love and the dark demons that tug her elsewhere.  Often considered the first great American opera, Porgy and Bess” soars with original music that blends jazz, gospel, and folk styles, from the gentle duet “Bess, You Is My Woman Now” to the instantly recognizable “Summertime” lullaby.  Themes of community resilience, acceptance, and redemption weave through this poignant story, ultimately asking if even the most unwavering of loves can conquer the force of personal addiction.  After the show enjoy a delicious buffet dinner at Harriet’s Family Restaurant.  A hidden gem located in the historic Harrington Hotel in downtown D.C., the restaurant offers its customers a relaxed family-friendly atmosphere away from the crowds of D.C. tourists.  The Washington National Opera: “Porgy and Bess” is presented in the Kennedy Center’s Opera House with Balcony Seats.
