11TH-13TH MAY 2018
See the romantic musical South Pacific by the Geneva Amateur Operatic Society (GAOS) at the Casino Theatre in Carouge.
South Pacific takes place on an exotic tropical island in the South Pacific during the Second World War. Nellie Forbush, a young Navy nurse from Little Rock, Arkansas, meets and falls in love with Emile De Becque, a gallant, middle-aged French plantation owner. However, she has second thoughts upon discovering that he’s fathered two half-Polynesian children. Meanwhile, a beautiful, innocent Tonkinese girl, Liat, has captured the heart of Lieutenant Joseph Cable, USMC – although he admits that he could never marry her. Liat’s mother is the infamous and enterprising “Bloody Mary”. When Emile and Joe set off on a secret mission to an enemy-held island, Nellie struggles to overcome her prejudices, fearing that Emile may not return alive. Based on James A. Michener’s prize-winning book, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein’s masterpiece contains many of their best-loved songs.
GAOS is proud to bring this musical to the Geneva stage, complete with a live orchestra.
