A lovingly recreated, picture perfect production
17 Sep 14 / The Opera Critic
Lisa McCune reigns supreme as Anna in lavish Opera Australia production of The King and I
14 Sep 14 / The Daily Telegraph
A spectacular rendition of a classic musical, filled with pageantry and pathos, wit, humour, and heart
13 Sep 14 / Australian Stage Online
Lisa McCune in her element but production showing its age
12 Sep 14 / Sydney Morning Herald
Lisa McCune is a strong actor and, even from the back of the dress circle, commands attention
12 Sep 14 / Daily Review
Is the King and I racist, and is it time it was put to rest?
The King and I opens in Sydney this week off the back of successful seasons in Brisbane and Melbourne, overwhelmingly positive reviews from the major papers, and a Helpmann Award for best musical.
