Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein II pioneered a flair that was all their own in the golden age of musical theatre.
From 1940 to Hammerstein’s death in 1960, this musical duo dominated the musical stage and big screen with hits such as South Pacific and Cinderella, and their mastery of creating stories through music that lived beyond the page or even the performance is much of what keeps their work alive and well today. More than those of any composer or lyricist writing for the stage, the songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein have become an integral part of our everyday lives.
Some Enchanted Evening is an enthralling revue of some of their most stunning compositions and places five performers in a theatrical setting: first ‘backstage,’ where the songs are sung as personal interplay, and then ‘onstage,’ where the songs are presented to an audience. Some Enchanted Evening will delight you with a glorious parade of genuine hits.
