Royal appointment for Opera House

Published: 23 December 2018

The King And I, after enjoying a record-breaking season at the London Palladium, will open a major UK tour at Manchester’s Opera House.

Reprising his Broadway performance as The King will be Jose Llana and performing as Anna will be Annalene Beechey.

This production will play at the Opera House from April 26 to May 11, then go on to Dublin, Sunderland, Edinburgh, Leeds, Birmingham, Cardiff, Glasgow, Hull, Milton Keynes, Liverpool, Bristol, Woking and Southampton.

A cinema release of the live production from the Palladium has become the biggest live event in cinemas of 2018.

In the UK, the film reached the number one spot, with more than double the box office of the next film, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
