Kiss Me, Kate: A Musical Play, Full Score
For the first time ever, the definitive full orchestral score of one of Broadway's beloved smash hits of the Golden Age is available for purchase. This edition includes the complete script and stage directions, alternate keys and dance routines in an appendix, explanatory notes, and documentation. Using the same rigorous musicological principles that have long been applied to the works of the great European composers, the original 1948 orchestrations of Cole Porter's masterpiece have been meticulously restored.Broadway's classic musicals are perhaps America's most unique and enduring contribution to world culture, and Kiss Me, Kate is one of the jewels in the crown. Here it is at last, treated with the same respect as the great European operas and operettas. 754 pages.
