WELCOME From the President of Rathmines & Rathgar Musical Society On behalf o f the Rathmines and Rathgar Musical Society, I welcome you to the National Concert Hall and to our Rodgers & Hammerstein Concert.

t

The Society was founded in 1913 and, in the A utum n o f th a t year, staged a most successful Mikado. The then Com m ittee decided to produce a show in th e Spring o f the follow ing year, 1914, and so began the never-ending question - "W h at show do we do next?" Little did the founders o f the Society realise th a t every Spring and every A u tu m n fo r th e fo llo w in g 97 years, successive Committees would be faced w ith th a t burning question - "W hat do we do next?" It is ten years since the R&R produced a Rodgers & Hammerstein show - Carousel so it was considered tim e fo r another o f th e ir w onderful musicals - The King and I, Carousel, South Pacific, Oklahoma!, The Sound o f Music b ut which one? The answer was, why not a concert which w ould contain music from all five shows. Hence this Rodgers & Hammerstein concert.

-

-

The Society is most fortunate to have the renowned RTE Concert Orchestra joining us on stage, all o f which should result in "One Enchanted Evening" of music and song.

RODGERS & HAMMER5TEIN RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN An American Musical Powerhouse Richard Rodgers(1902-1979) and Oscar Hammerstein II (1895-1960) the well-known American songwriting duo created a string of popular Broadway musicals in the 1940s and 1950s during what is considered the golden age of the medium. W ith Rodgers composing the music and Hammerstein adding the lyrics, five of their shows, Oklahoma!, Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I, and The Sound o f Music, were outstanding successes. In all, among the many accolades that th e ir shows (and their film versions) garnered were th irty-fo u r Tony Awards, fifteen Academy Awards, the Pulitzer Prize, and tw o Grammys.

stopping number, "Oklahoma!", the deletion of the musical num ber "Boys and Girls Like You and Me", which would soon after be replaced w ith "People W ill Say W e're in Love", and the decision to re-title the musical after the song. The original Broadway production opened on March 31, 1943, at the St. James Theatre. Although the typical musical o f the tim e was usually w ritten around the talents of a specific performer, such as Ethel Merman or Fred Astaire, no stars were used in the production. In Oklahoma!, the story and the songs were considered more im portant than sheer star power. Nevertheless, the production ran fo r a then-unprecedented 2,212 performances, finally closing on May 29, 1948. Many enduring musical standards come from this show, among them Oh, W hat a Beautiful M ornin', The Surrey with the Fringe on Top, I Cain't Say No, People Will Say We're in Love, and Oklahoma!

Long before they wrote anything together, Rodgers and Hammerstein had been independently attracted to Carousel making a musical based on The original production of Lynn Riggs' stage play Green Carousel opened at Grow the Lilacs.

Based on Margaret Landon's Anna and the King o f Siam—the story o f Anna Leonowens, governess to the children of King M ongkut of Siam in the early 1860s— Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical The King and I opened on Broadway on March 29, 1951, starring Gertrude Lawrence as Anna, and a mostly unknown Yul Brynner as the King. This musical featured the hit songs "I W histle a Happy Tune", "Hello, Young Lovers", "Getting to Know You", "We Kiss in a Shadow", "Something W onderful", "I Have Dreamed", and "Shall We Dance?"

Rodgers stated, "W hat won us over was the chance to w ork w ith Julie." The film starred Julie Andrews as Cinderella. It was broadcast in black and white, and featured songs still treasured today, "M y Own Little Corner", and "Impossible: It's Possible." After the success o f the 1957 production, another version was presented in 1965 on CBS, and yet another in 1997 on ABC, starring Brandy, W hitney Houston, Bernadette Peters, and W hoopi Goldberg.

The Sound o f Music The Sound o f Music, Rodgers and Hammerstein's last work together, told the story o f the von Trapp family and opened on Broadway at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in November 1959, garnering much praise and numerous awards.
