Porgy was a novel written by DuBose Heyward. With his wife, Dorothy Heyward, he made it into a play. George Gershwin read the novel and decided to use it as the basis for his opera. DuBose Heyward wrote the libretto, and he and Ira Gershwin wrote the lyrics for the songs. Gershwin set it to music and it was premiered as Porgy and Bess in 1935 in Boston.
