RECENT EVENTS - The King and I

Friday 12 June - Sunday 28 June 2009

King and I-main

The timeless classic musical, Rodgers & Hammerstein's The King and I, has captured the hearts and minds of millions with its charming story of the British governess brought into the court of Siam to tutor the King's many children. Once within the splendour of the Royal Palace, beautifully recreated within the magical setting of the Royal Albert Hall, Anna and the King grow to understand one another and learn about each other's cultures.

Fully staged in the round, this spectacular new production plays for just twenty performances. The unique love story is told with one of the most glorious and unforgettable scores ever written. The much-loved songs and sweeping melodies from the show include: The March of the Siamese Children, Shall We Dance, I Whistle a Happy Tune, Hello Young Lovers and the unforgettable Getting to Know You.

The King and I is lavishly brought to life by Jeremy Sams (The Sound of Music, Noises Off) and Robert Jones (The Sound of Music, On The Town) with musical direction by Gareth Valentine (Cats, Miss Saigon) and played by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra. Starring one of the UK's best-loved stage performers Maria Friedman alongside Daniel Dae Kim, star of the hit TV series Lost, this promises to be a memorable musical not to be missed.

Music by Richard Rodgers. Book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II. Based on the novel entitled Anna and the King of Siam by Margaret Landon. Presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Limited on behalf of R&H Theatricals of New York.
