The Tony Award-winning Lincoln Center Theater production of South Pacific comes to the Barbican theatre.

Set during World War II, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific is a sweeping romantic story of two couples, threatened by the realities of war.

Considered to be among the finest musicals ever written, its memorable score includes Some Enchanted Evening, I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair and There Is Nothin’ Like A Dame.

This production of South Pacific, which won seven Tony Awards and sold out on Broadway for two years, features a cast of 40 and a live orchestra of 25. It was described by the New York Times as “Rapturous and revelatory”, while the Washington Post called it “The best Rodgers and Hammerstein in a generation.”

This international hit landmark production of South Pacific, which is directed by Bartlett Sher, plays at the Barbican theatre for a strictly limited seven-week London season.
