Course Description

On March 31, 1943, the curtain went up on Oklahoma!, the first collaboration between Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, two Broadway veterans, and American musical theater was never again the same. Over the next twenty years, they produced five acknowledged masterpieces, some near-misses, and a few notable flops. This course will explore their collaboration in detail—from “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’” to “Climb Ev'ry Mountain”—to understand what distinguished their work from previous musical comedies and how their legacy continues to influence us today. Lecture (plus Questions) Listening to Music or Other Audio Viewing Videos
