Show Details

Rodgers & Hammerstein's
The King and I

Based on "Anna and the King of Siam" by Margaret Landon,
Original Choreography by Jerome Robbins

Rodgers & Hammerstein's highly celebrated musical set in 1860's Bangkok tells the moving story of the experience of Anna, a British school teacher hired as a governess as part of the King of Siam's idea to modernise his country.
A celebration of love in all its forms, we see the desperation of forbidden love; the love of a neglected wife; and although on the surface we witness an amusing conflict between Anna and the King as East meets West, love creeps up on them, which neither can admit or accept.
