Renard Lecture: Rodgers and Hammerstein, Their Life and Works

Rodgers’ and Hammerstein’s musical theatre writing partnership has been called the greatest of the 20th century.  They created a string of popular Broadway musicals in the 1940s and 1950s, initiating what is considered the “golden age” of musical theatre.  Five of their Broadway shows, Oklahoma, Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I, and The Sound of Music were outstanding successes. This discussion will include their biographies’ and how that influenced their work. Video excepts will accompany the lecture.

Edith Glass, of Chappaqua, was accepted into the School of American Ballet at seven, when she was chosen by George Balanchine to appear in his ballet “The Wanderer.” Later, she studied with the renowned choreographer Anthony Tudor. She appeared in several musical productions after receiving her Chorus Equity membership card when she was 15. She is an Adjunct Professor at Westchester Community College.
