THE LINCOLN CENTER THEATER PRODUCTION OF RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN’S
Must close 8 December
“A lavish, world-class affair. Perth’s stage highlight of 2013” WA Today
After 7-Tony Awards and sell-out seasons on Broadway and the West End, this stunning new production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s SOUTH PACIFIC is heading to Perth to play Crown Theatre from November 10, for a strictly limited season.
Perth favourite Lisa McCune stars as Nellie alongside celebrated baritone Teddy Tahu Rhodes as Emile and Christine Anu as Bloody Mary.
SOUTH PACIFIC features a glorious score played by the superb Perth Symphony Orchestra, including magnificent numbers Some Enchanted Evening, There is Nothin’ Like a Dame, Bali Ha’I, Younger than Springtime, Happy Talk and I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair.
A ground-breaking new production, directed by Bartlett Sher, SOUTH PACIFIC swept the 2008 Tony Awards® and played to sold-out houses for two and a half years, making it one of the Lincoln Center Theatre’s most successful productions. A sell-out London season was followed by a UK tour, before reaching Australian shores where it became a smash hit. The first Sydney season last winter became the highest selling show ever performed at the Sydney Opera House.
The Australia season of SOUTH PACIFIC marks the coming together of Australia’s largest performing arts company, Opera Australia, with Australia’s largest commercial theatre producer, John Frost.
