South Pacific in Concert from Carnegie Hall (#3016)
"South Pacific" reached new heights when -- for one enchanted evening -- Carnegie Hall presented a magnificent concert production with a dream cast headed by Reba McEntire, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Jason Danieley, Lillias White and Alec Baldwin. Directed for the concert stage by Walter Bobbie, with musical director Paul Gemignani conducting the Orchestra of St. Luke's, the performance was acclaimed by The New York Times as "a state of nearly unconditional rapture," praising the production for locating "the show's real staying power in its operatic respect for love as a force that hurts, teases, destroys and ennobles."
