Another Op’nin’, Another Show

“Another Op’nin’, Another Show” is the opening number of Cole Porter‘s 1948 musical Kiss Me, Kate.
Sung by a band of players performing a musical adaption of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, the song has become regarded as a show business anthem on a level with “That’s Entertainment!” (from The Band Wagon) and “There’s No Business Like Show Business” (from Annie Get Your Gun). However, it was not included in the 1953 film version of the musical, except as an instrumental dance number from the song “why can’t you behave”. Porter insisted that the song be used in the film.
