Thirteen years before George Gershwin wrote his landmark opera, Porgy and Bess, he wrote a one-act opera that fused Italian opera with a truly American style. The result was Blue Monday. This 30‐minute jazz opera gem is set in a 1920’s Harlem jazz club where a lover’s spat turns murderous to the music of Gershwin that audiences adore.
