Today’s Staying Alive video features baritone Jarrett Logan Porter singing “In the Still of the Night” from Rosalie by Cole Porter. He is accompanied by Lyndon Meyer.
Jarrett Logan Porter made his Tulsa Opera debut in 2019, when he sang the role of Dancaïre in Carmen. He would have returned to the Tulsa Opera stage to sing the role of Simon Fenton in Tobias Picker’s Emmeline, but the production was cancelled due to the pandemic.
Rosalie is a film adaptation of the 1928 Broadway musical of the same name. However, the film replaced most of the musical’s score with new songs by Cole Porter, including “In the Still of the Night.” One of the film’s most popular songs, “In the Still of the Night” has been recorded by a number of notable artists, including Perry Como, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, and Doris Day, among many others.
