CHESTER: Storyhouse presents Northern Ballet Sinfonia: Porgy and Bess in The Kitchen at 8pm. The wonderful symphonic suite from Gershwin’s epoch defining Porgy and Bess is just that, a continuous orchestral suite of the show’s biggest hits, arranged for orchestra and made popular by the hugely talented Ian Farrington. Gerswhin’s own suite, Catfish Row, missed out all the best numbers, so this is a little correction on behalf of history! Faure’s incidental music to Maeterlinck’s classic play Pelleas et Mellisande, also performed tonight, is one of his most popular works, written at breakneck speed for the stage production in 1893. The play hit a nerve and dragged some amazing music of Debussy, Schoenberg and Sibelius. Tickets £30 including drinks and nibbles. Visit www.storyhouse.com or call 01244 409113.
