The center proudly presents Opera Roanoke’s fully staged production, with orchestra, of this timeless Rodgers and Hammerstein Broadway blockbuster for one night only in Blacksburg.

Known for its extraordinary score and adapted from James Michener’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Tales of the South Pacific, this classic American musical is set on an island paradise during World War II.

Against this backdrop, two parallel love stories bloom and are threatened by the dangers of prejudice and war.

Supported in part by a gift from Stosser/Craig Partners
