Rodgers & HammersteinSouth Pacific



Lyrics By Oscar Hammerstein II  Music By Richard Rodgers

Beginning with the three majestic notes of “Bali H’ai,” South Pacific’s overture is considered one of the greatest overtures of all time. Exuberantly arranged by Robert Russell Bennett, it presents an extraordinary array of the great songs to follow, full of passion, humor and melody. Imagine hearing it before the world knew “There is Nothing Like A Dame,” “A Wonderful Guy,” “Some Enchanted Evening” and the rest.
