I fell asleep and woke at 2:00am. Let the dogs out to potty and discovered PBS is playing Live at Lincoln Center: CAROUSEL, starring Kelli O’Hara, Nathan Gunn, Jason Danieley, and Stephanie Blythe. So impressive.  The voices are incredible.  The staging fantastic. This production is accompanied by The New York Philharmonic.  It is incredible to hear the full score – wow!  Absolutely beautiful!

Musically, I would venture to say this is one of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s best musicals. In fact, Richard Rodger’s called this his opera.  This production is absolutely stunning and exceptionally beautiful. I’ve only seen a few productions of CAROUSE and my favorite (seen live) was Wright State University’s mounting which was excellent.

The CAROUSEL link above allows you to see, and listen, to snippets of this production. Below is the link to this magnificent production.

Live from Lincoln Center: CAROUSEL

It is 2:57am and I doubt I will be sleeping until this program has ended.
