THE lavish and heart-warming story of The King and I comes to Bradford Alhambra next month.
Set in the court of the King of Siam, this is one of the greatest stage musicals of all times and became a blockbuster movie starring Yul Brynner and Deborah Kerr.
It tells the story of a British governess brought to the King’s palace to tutor his many children and has one of the must beautiful scores ever written, with sweeping melodies such as The March of the Siamese Children, Shall We Dance, I Whistle a Happy Tune, Hello Young Lovers and the unforgettable Getting to Know You.
This breathtaking new production features giant gold Buddhas, sumptuous costumes, a chorus
of adorable children, acrobatic dancers and live music.
Taking the lead roles are Ramon Tikaram Josefina Gabrielle.
