The Isaac Theatre Royal will resound with the Sound of Music when Showbiz Christchurch presents An Evening of Rodgers and Hammerstein Classics, in concert.

The most beloved works of Richard Rodgers (music) and Oscar Hammerstein II (lyrics) will be presented in all their musical glory with a full Broadway-style orchestra on stage, featured soloists and a chorus of over 100 singers from Showbiz Christchurch and the renowned National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Art (NASDA).

The Golden Age of Musical Theatre:
Rodgers and Hammerstein initiated what has been called “The Golden Age” of musical theatre with their writing partnership which is considered one of the greatest of the 20th century. Their string of hit musicals includeOklahoma, The King and I, Carousel, South Pacific and The Sound of Music, amongst others, which garnered 34 Tonys, 15 Oscars, the Pulitzer Prize and two Grammy Awards.

Huge hits, Orchestral Interludes & Rousing Choruses:
An Evening of Rodgers and Hammerstein Classics features much-loved songs that were huge hits when first released, which have since grown to iconic status over the decades. The concert includes solos such as: ‘Some Enchanted Evening’, ‘The Sound of Music’ and ‘Younger Than Springtime’ duets that include: ‘People Will Say We’re in Love’ and ‘I have Dreamed’, orchestral interludes and, of course, rousing choruses with over 100 singers raising the Isaac Theatre Royal roof with ‘Oklahoma!’, ‘There is Nothin’ Like a Dame’ and ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.

Conducted by Richard Marrett and directed by Stephen Robertson, this will be a ‘Grand Night for Singing’ that will be one of your ‘Favourite Things’ in 2017.
