Direct from its record-breaking sold-out season at The London Palladium, The King and I, the greatest musical from the golden age of musicals, is coming to Sunderland Empire, and Opera House Manchester.
Set in 1860s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.
With one of the finest scores ever written including Whistle a Happy Tune, Getting to Know You and Shall We Dance, over 50 world-class performers AND full-scale orchestra. This is a celebration of the lavish heritage of the very best in romantic musical theatre from an unparalleled multi award-winning creative team. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness this glorious production.
