South Pacific is a musical play, with music by Richard Rodgers and lyrics by Oscar
Hammerstein II. It first opened on Broadway in 1949 and ran for more than five years with 1,925
performances; at the time it closed, it was the fifth-longest running show in Broadway history. South Pacific is generally considered to be one of the greatest musicals of all time, and a
number of its songs, such as "Bali Ha'i", "Younger than Springtime" and "Some Enchanted
Evening", have become worldwide standards. It was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1950.
The play is based on two short stories by James A. Michener from his book Tales of the South
Pacific, which itself was the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1948.
