Various - A Grand Night for Singing - The Daily Mail

It's chock-full of great songs from Oklahoma!, The King And I, South Pacific and more, and it links them together in a celebration of love — from infatuation ('Hello Young Lovers') to rejection ('All At Once You Love Her') to marriage ('When The Children Are Asleep').

It's a clever conceit and allows some re-imaginings; 'Maria' from The Sound Of Music, for instance, is sung from a frustrated boyfriend's point of view.

The cast of Kim Criswell, Danielle de Niese, Anna-Jane Casey, Damian Humbley and Richard Morrison, under the musical direction of Wayne Marshall, create some enchanted evening.
