South Pacific

Rodgers & Hammerstein

South Pacific

Festival Theatre, Adelaide

The smash hit production of Rodgers & Hammerstein's South Pacific will soon sail into the Adelaide Festival Centre for a strictly limited season!

After the critical and box office success of the breathtaking and lavish Rodgers & Hammerstein musical South Pacific in 2012, an extended season will see it continue its Australian tour, playing from coast-to-coast.

"A formidable cast of both new and returning stars bring this work to life"
- Limelight

Directed by Bartlett Sher, this ground-breaking production swept the 2008 Tony Awards® and played to sold-out houses on Broadway and the West End for two and a half years.

The first Sydney season last winter, became the highest selling show ever performed at the Sydney Opera House.

Acclaimed opera star Teddy Tahu Rhodes and Australia’s best loved and four time Gold Logie award-winning actress Lisa McCune will head the stellar cast as Emile de Beque and Nellie Forebush.

Sensational performer Christine Anu will play the role of Bloody Mary, following her highly successful appearances in the recent Brisbane season.

According to Festival Centre CEO & Director Douglas Gautier, Adelaide is sure to fall in love with South Pacific. “It’s tremendous to be able to welcome back Opera Australia and we look forward to working with them on this much loved musical that is sure to be a favourite with Adelaide audiences over the summer break”.

Relive the romance as the 26-piece orchestra plays showstoppers like 'Some Enchanted Evening', 'I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair', 'Bali Ha’i' and 'There is Nothin’ Like a Dame'.
