Win... a pair of tickets to see multi award-winning 'The King and I'

Closing date: 3rd May 2018

The critically acclaimed Lincoln Center Theater production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s 'The King And I' is coming to London – and Optima Magazine has teamed up with the producers to offer a pair of top class tickets to see the show that has been showered in plaudits. The Wall Street Journal wrote, ‘I doubt I'll ever see a better production in my lifetime'.

Due to phenomenal demand, the multi award-winning production has extended its engagement for a final three weeks to Saturday 29th September at London's iconic Palladium. This is the very last opportunity West End audiences will have to see the Broadway stars reprise their original roles on the London stage.

Set in the 1860s, The 'King And I' tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna, a British schoolteacher, whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, employs to teach his many wives and children. 

Making their West End debuts are the original Broadway stars including Tony award-winning Kelli O’Hara (Anna) and Tony and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (The King). Joining the cast are Japanese film and television star Takao Osawa as the Kralahome, trusted adviser to the King of Siam, and West End star of Aladdin, Dean John-Wilson and Na-Young Jeon as the young lovers, Lun Tha and Tuptim.

Offering one of the finest scores ever written including 'Whistle a Happy Tune' and 'Getting to Know You', this is a lavish and gloriously romantic production, and a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the greatest musical from the golden age of musicals – tipped to be the Hot Ticket of 2018.
