One of the greatest American musicals by Rogers and Hammerstein and the winner of ten Tony Awards, South Pacific tells the story of an American nurse, Nellie, stationed on a South Pacific island during World War II who falls in love with Emile, an expatriate French plantation owner. As Nellie struggles to accept Emile’s mixed-raced children, this romantic classic candidly explores the issue of racial prejudice and the power of relationships.
