One of the most romantic scores of all time!

Set against the backdrop of the Second World War, South Pacific offers a lushly romantic score while challenging audiences with themes of racial intolerance and bigotry. The classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical is based on James A. Michener's 1947 Pulitzer Prize-winning book “Tales of the South Pacific” and focuses on French plantation owner Emile de Becque and his love interest, Nellie Forbush, a naïve young nurse from Arkansas.

The Rodgers and Hammerstein score includes numerous American songbook classics such as “Some Enchanted Evening,” “Younger than Springtime,” “Happy Talk,” “Bali H'ai” and “There Is Nothing Like a Dame.” The original musical, starring Mary Martin and Ezio Pinza, won nine Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for its Broadway debut in 1949.
