The dazzling Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, South Pacific, will be brought to lush life by Lyric Light Opera during two performances at the Kirkland Performance Center.

The Academy Award - winner is a towering musical masterpiece and the tender love story of a naïve young Navy nurse and an older French plantation owner on a U.S. occupied South Sea island.

The breathtaking score is highlighted by some of the most beautiful songs ever written: “Some Enchanted Evening,” “There is Nothin’ Like a Dame,” “Younger Than Springtime” and more.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, South Pacific ranks among the most celebrated of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s acclaimed musicals. Lyric Light Opera – Broadway quality, half the price!

Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. March 24, 30 and 31 and 2 p.m. March 25 and April 1 at the Kirkland Performance Center, 350 Kirkland Ave., Kirkland. Tickets cost $37 adults, $35 seniors and $35 youth.
