For a taster, here's Kim Criswell singing Gershwin's I Got Rhythm with the John Wilson Orchestra.
From Gershwin's America in the Roaring '20s and '30s - prohibition, the Wall Street Crash and flappers - to the jazz-inspired energy and theatrical panache of Leonard Bernstein.
The soundtrack will be provided by the sensational Kim Criswell, John Wilson and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra. This charismatic evening includes music from Gershwin's Girl Crazy and Porgy and Bess, Bernstein's Candide, West Side Story, On the Town and more.
