Oklahoma! at Bard College

  • The Fisher Center for the Performing Arts 60 Manor Ave Annandale-On-Hudson, NY 12504 USA (map)

Rodgers and Hammerstein’s first collaboration transformed musical theater when it premiered in 1943. Set in the Territory of Oklahoma in the years before statehood, Oklahoma! joins a sunny romance with the darker story of a community rising up against a reviled outsider. This summer, director Daniel Fish (Rocket to the Moon, SummerScape 2005) creates a boldly intimate chamber production of this beloved classic. Enacting the communal rites of a young nation, actors, musicians, and audience will share one space and break bread together, bound by the songs and dances of Richard Rodgers’s exuberant and complex score.
