This is the First Complete Recording of the Pulitzer Prize winning South Pacific from the award winning team of Rodgers and Hammerstein.

The recording utilises the original orchestrations, and is performed by the National Symphony Orchestra, under the highly acclaimed conductor John Owen Edwards. This is a digital surround recording, which took place at the world famous Abbey Road studios. The leads are sung by international opera star Justino Diaz and Broadway star Paige O’Hara, supported by Shezwae Powell and Sean McDermott. A cast and recording that The Sunday Times were to say has the excitement and immediacy of a Shaftesbury Avenue first night.   Recommended for anyone…”.

A runaway success both on Broadway and in the West End, South Pacific tells the stories of American GI’s stationed in foreign climes and the relationships that they were to develop with the local girls and their communities. Including “A Cockeyed Optimist”, “Some Enchanted Evening”, “Bloody Mary”, “There Is Nothing Like A Dame”, “Bali Ha’i”, “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair”, “A Wonderful Guy”, “Younger Than Springtime”, “Happy Talk”, “Honey Bun”, “This Nearly Was Mine”, It is a classic of musical theatre and one for all collections.
