Telling the story of Rodgers & Hammerstein, through beautiful music and harmonies.
“The Life and Music of Rodgers & Hammerstein” presents the story of the most successful partnership in the American musical theatre - Richard Rodgers (composer) and Oscar Hammerstein II (lyricist).
The first Rodgers & Hammerstein musical was “Oklahoma”, and was also the first of a new genre - the musical play. It was a delightful fusion of Rodgers' musical comedy and Hammerstein's operetta. This represented a milestone in the development of the American musical, and marked the beginning of the most successful partnership in Broadway musical history.
Many more musicals followed - Carousel, Allegro, South Pacific, The King And I, Me And Juliet, Pipe Dream, Flower Drum Song and The Sound Of Music. They also wrote “State Fair” which was a musical specifically for the big screen,and “Cinderella”- for television.
This live performance takes you on a journey through their lives and their musical careers, and features many of their most well known songs, including Oklahoma, Some Enchanted Evening, You’ll Never Walk Alone, Nothing Like A Dame, and Climb Every Mountain.
