Course Description

On March 31, 1943, the curtain went up on Oklahoma!, the first collaboration between two Broadway veterans, and American musical theater was never again the same. Over the next twenty years, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II produced five acknowledged masterpieces, some near-misses, and a few notable flops. In the six sessions of this course we will spend one session on their early (separate) careers. In the remaining sessions we will focus on their five major musicals: Oklahoma!, Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I, and The Sound of Music. Come join us as we travel from “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’” to “Climb Every Mountain” in order to understand what distinguished their work from previous musical comedies and how their legacy continues to influence us today. | Lecture (plus questions); Listening to audio recordings; Viewing videos
