George Gershwin had high hopes for his first opera, a setting of DuBose Heyward's novel 'Porgy.' "If I am successful," he wrote, "it will resemble a combination of the drama and romance of 'Carmen' and the beauty of 'Meistersinger,' if you can imagine that." The 75th anniversary touring company comes to Cincinnati for one night (Feb. 24) with a production approved by the Gershwin estate and overseen by Michael Capasso, general director of New York's Dicapo Opera Theatre.
