Opera Idaho Operatini: Some Enchanted Evening

Thursday, Aug. 11


In 1949, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein released South Pacific, the now titanically famous musical about two romances flowering in the midst of World War II. The play won 10 Tony awards and a Pulitzer in 1950. It has been revived for the stage multiple times and has been the source of several songs that have been stuck in Americans' heads since the Eisenhower years, like "Some Enchanted Evening" and "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair." Thursday, Aug. 11, Opera Idaho will perform selections from the classic musical in style at The Riverside Hotel Sapphire Room, with South Pacific-themed martinis, appetizers and more. Tickets are $20 for one and $35 for couples.
