Thursday 23 August 
7.00pm performance 
at the National: 
Lyttelton Theatre 
 
 
There's a pleasing symmetry to this magical piece of story-telling. But the vividness of the entire production springs from the depth and subtlety of the acting. These are towering performances, flecked with touches of performing genius.

Our Sold-Out visit is on 30 October.

THE KING AND I - 
SOMETHING WONDERFUL 
   While the audience leaving the  St James Theatre after the opening night of The King  and I were whistling a happy tune, the creators of the show, Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein ll were flying on a light cloud of music. They had produced something wonderful
