The King and I, 2015 Broadway Cast Recording (CD)
Record Label: Universal Music Classics
Release Date: April 25, 2015
“The score, given the full velvet touch by a sublime orchestra, contains some of [Rodgers and Hammerstein’s] lushest ballads. They acquire freshening nuance and anchoring conviction here. That Kelli O'Hara, one of our greatest reinterpreters of musical standards, does so is not surprising.” — The New York Times
Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic, The King and I, brought to new life and light by the 2015 Broadway cast, including five-time Tony Award nominee Kelli O’Hara and Academy Award nominee Ken Watanabe. Using the original, lush orchestrasions, this production from the Lincoln Center is unquestionably the new standard for this seminal American musical.
