The hit musical The King and I makes its way to Sydney this month, settling into its new home at the Opera House.

The King and I was hailed as ‘the most ravishing show you may ever see on Broadway’ when it opened in 1996 – and has been delighting and entertaining audiences ever since. The dazzling Sydney show is an exciting and fresh new take on the prestigious classic.

Created in Australia, The King and I is a story of love and joy set to one of the most glorious scores ever written. The delightful story follows Anna Leanowens who is brought to the court of Siam as a tutor to the King’s children.

In the play, the King of Siam (Teddy Tahu-Rhode) invites Anna (Lisa McCune) to educate his many children about Western customs and the English language. What follows is a story of growth, learning, hardships and love.

Starring acclaimed actress Lisa McCune and renowned international opera sensation Teddy Tahu-Rhode, the dazzling musical is filled with stunning scenery, magnificent costumes and world-class performers.
