Description

Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II

Music by Richard Rodgers

Based on “Anna and the King of Siam” by Margaret Landon

Original Choreography by Jerome Robbins

In 1862 Siam, an English widow named Anna and her young son arrive at the Royal Palace in Bangkok. Anna has been summoned by the King of Siam to tutor his many children and wives.
