In 2004 at her home in Oslo, Norway, soprano Anne Wiggins Brown sat down with tenor Dr. William A. Brown (no relation) of the Center Black Music Research for a rare, on-the-record conversation about originating the iconic role of 'Bess' in the opera Porgy and Bess with famed composer George Gershwin. Revealed are little-known facts about what is arguably the most popular American opera touring to date. Details of the opera’s inception and the cast, as well as Ms. Brown's controversial run-ins with discrimination, offer an illuminating historical account. This was one of Ms. Brown’s final interviews. Filmed through the talented lensing of Director of Photography Henry Adebonojo, this lively and engaging conversation covers musicianship, self-reliance, race, and beauty.
