St. Pete Opera Presents South Pacific
There is Nothing Like a Dame
Epecially on an enchanted Pacific Island. Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II created the adorable Nellie Forbush, who falls for the planter Emile DeBecque, only to have their love tested by her intolerant upbringing. Nellie sings what have become American standards: Cock-eyed Optimist, I’m in Love with a Wonderful Guy,and Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair. Emile sings the mega hitSome Enchanted Evening.
The young Lieutenant Cable is captivated by a native woman’s daughter, and in order to find happiness, both he and Nellie have to unlearn the racial prejudices they were carefully taught as young people. Cable gives us Younger Than Springtime. The Mother, Bloody Mary, give us Bali Ha’i and Happy Talk.
Restless American Seabees and Navy Nurses mingle with Soldiers and Marines, and they all interact with the locals on this South Pacific Island as the war gets nearer and nearer to their remote outpost in this WWII Theater.
South Pacific is one of the most beloved musicals of all time, and our Nellie Forbush will be played by the incredible Molly Mustonen. Molly brings her young character to vibrant life.
Don’t miss a single note. After all, there’s nothing like a dame!
