Moreso than any composer and lyricist who have written for the stage, the songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein have become an integral part of our everyday lives. 

We sing them in the shower, we dance to them in ballrooms, we hear them on the radio and in clubs and, yes, in elevators and supermarkets too. We still thrill to them on the live stage in their respective shows, and we teach them to our children. This stunning collection of compositions offers the audience a glorious parade of genuine hits.

Some Enchanted Evening includes songs and dances from –

  • Allegro
  • Carousel
  • Cinderella
  • Flower Drum Song
  • Oklahoma
  • South Pacific
  • The King & I
  • The Sound of Music
