“Chosen not only for its easily recognized show tunes, [‘I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair’ and ‘Some Enchanted Evening’ among them] Asheville Lyric Opera hopes to introduce the Asheville audience to the classical stage genius of Rodgers & Hammerstein,” says a press release. The musical South Pacific is set on a remote island with American soldiers, Navy nurses and island natives. Romances bloom, and racism threatens to tear lovers apart. The summer production of South Pacific takes place at the Diana Wortham Theatre on Friday and Saturday, July 18 and 19, at 8 p.m., and on Sunday, July 20, at 3 p.m. $30-$58.
