The King and I is a musical by Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein II. It is based on Margaret Landon’s novel ‘Anna and the King of Siam’ which was inspired by the memoirs of the governess to the children of King Mongkut of Siam in the 1860s. The musical premiered on Broadway in 1951 and opened in the West End two years later. The story revolves around the King of Siam and Anna, a British teacher who’s hired to educate the King’s wives and children, and how their relationship grows.
