The Dallas Opera's staging of Porgy & Bess wrapped up Saturday -- but fret not, opera fans, as the DO has just posted several clips from the local run at Fair Park. Here's "There's a Boat That's Leaving Soon For New York," and several more can be found after the jump -- including Janice Chandler-Eteme's "Summetime." Incidentally, Dallas Opera has, for a while now, been making available videos from most of its productions; they're available here. --Robert Wilonsky

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
