Wayne Marshall Conductor

In a career that spanned over three decades and producing over twelve hundred works, Cole Porter can rightly be considered a true pioneer of popular song. Unusually, Porter wrote both the music and lyrics, the only other notable exception being his great rival Irving Berlin, who famously said of Porter while referencing one of his one hits, “I still say, to paraphrase an old bar-room ballad, ‘anything I can do, you can do better’.”

Widely-recognisable Porter tunes such as I Get A Kick Out Of You, Let’s Do It (Let’s Fall In Love), Love For Sale, Night and Day, It’s De-lovely… have become enduring classics from Broadway and London’s West End. West End and Broadway Star Kim Criswell Joins Wayne Marshall and The RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra for an unforgettable tribute to the genius of Cole Porter.

Presented by RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra
