When a young American nurse from Little Rock (Mitzi Gaynor) meets the handsome and mysterious French plantation owner (Rossano Brazzi) on a South Pacific island during World War II, they find refuge from the battles around them as their romance blooms, in this finely crafted, Oscar-Winning musical.
Rogers and Hammerstein wrote many great musicals, but the score of South Pacific is one of the strongest, producing many 'old standards'. ‘There is Nothing' Like a Dame’, ‘Younger than Springtime’, ‘Bali Hai’, ‘Gonna Wash that Man Right outa my Hair’, and the eternal ‘Some Enchanted Evening’ are major highlights, but many other delightful and strong songs help fill this impressive musical. Its racial stance was also ahead of its time. The wonderful supporting cast included Ray Walston, Juanita Hall, and Bill Kerr. When it opened at the London Dominion in 1958 not surprisingly it ran for over 5 years - those were the cinema days! Presented in a newly restored digital version on our huge outdoor screen.
