Rodgers & Hammerstein's The King and I by : Oscar Hammerstein II : Richard Rodgers
The King and I opened on Broadway on March 29; 1951. The musical is based on a 1944 novel by Margaret Landon; Anna and the King of Siam; which in turn was adapted from the real-life reminiscences of Anna Leonowens; as recounted in her own books; The English Governess at the Siamese Court and The Romance of the Harem.
It is 1862 in Siam when an English widow; Anna Leonowens; arrives with her young son at the Royal Palace in Bangkok; having been summoned by the King to serve as tutor to his many children and wives. The King is largely considered to be a barbarian by those in the West; and he seeks Anna's assistance in changing his image; if not his ways. With both keeping a firm grip on their respective traditions and values; Anna and the King grow to understand and; eventually; respect one another in a truly unique love story. Along with the dazzling score; the incomparable Jerome Robbins ballet The Small House of Uncle Thomas is one of the all-time marvels of the musical stage.
