Overture

Lyrics By Oscar Hammerstein II  Music By Richard Rodgers

This sweeping overture, orchestrated (and probably sequenced) by Robert Russell Bennett, features themes from such numbers as “I Whistle A Happy Tune,” “I Have Dreamed,” “Something Wonderful” and others. Its majestic opening chords immediately establish the royal world of Siam.
