Starring Annalene Beechy and Jose Liana, the multi-award-winning Broadway show is loved by the public. This glorious production tells the story of a hidden romance which develops between Anna and the King of Siam. The king brings Anna and her son to Bangkok to teach his wives and children. He's determined to introduce Siam (today's Thailand) into the Western World and believes the safest route is through education. But when Anna arrives in Siam, she's shocked by the traditions the King values. They both try to find common ground.
Because Western rulers consider the King to be a barbarian, he tries to change his image with Anna's help. Although both have firm beliefs and respect for their own traditions, they overcome the differences through understanding, love, and respect. Underneath the turbulent, strongly opinionated and conflictual relationship between the king and Anna lies a truly moving love story.
