The all-new cast recording of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s classic, The King and I, features the 2015 Broadway cast including five-time Tony Award nominee Kelli O’Hara and Academy Award nominee Ken Watanabe. Using the original, lush orchestrations, this production from Lincoln Center Theater is sure to become the new standard for this seminal American musical.

“This score, given the full velvet touch by a sublime orchestra, contains some of [Rodgers and Hammerstein’s] lushest ballads. They acquire freshening nuance and anchoring conviction here. That Ms. O’Hara, one of our greatest reinterpreters of musical standards, does so is not surprising. You’ll feel you’re hearing ‘Hello, Young Lovers’ for the first time.” – New York Times

“You can’t overstate how stunningly beautiful, how achingly well sung this new revival of The King and I is.” – New York Post

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
