Carousel and the Legacy of Rodgers and Hammerstein
Sunday July 24th at 1 pm & Saturday, July 30th at 6:30 pm
Rodgers & Hammerstein not only remain household names for their enduring movie musicals, but are considered by many scholars as the leading architects of the modern musical play. But what about their musicals paved the way for generations of other theater-makers, and how does Carousel fit in with their legacy? Why was Rodgers so adept at writing waltzes, and what difference does it make if music or lyrics come first? Come enjoy a free pre-show discussion of these topics and more with YMTC Resident Musical Director, David Möschler, conductor and published scholar and specialist on Carousel.
