EVDOL 073 — Rodgers and Hammerstein

Faye-Ellen Silverman
During the 1940s and ‘50s, Rodgers and Hammerstein advanced American musical theater by creating innovative shows treating important social issues. In this course, three of these ever-popular shows—Carousel (dealing with domestic violence), South Pacific (racism) and The Sound of Music (the rise of Nazism)—are discussed in terms of the magical interaction of composer and lyricist and how the specific themes colored the music and lyrics of each show. The original source material is reviewed to see what ideas were kept and what was changed in adapting the material to the musical stage, and how these changes reflected the personalities of both composer and lyricist.
