Post How long is the show?
Hello everybody...

I just saw that Lyon's Opera House announced their 2012-2013 season.
I was very surprised and happy to see "The king and I" Rodgers & Hammerstein in it ! :o
Musicals are not very common in France, and more than rare in opera houses... (even operettas are rare in opera houses in France...)

But my enthousiasm was quite over when i saw "Approximated running time : 1 hour" :-k
I guess they cut many scenes to make it easier for kids to sse it (as if kids could'nt handle a 2 hour show...)

So I wondered : how long is is the show supposed to last ?

Thanks fot the reply !

Thanks !

That's what I had in mind...

So they made a mistake on the program, or they massively cut it... I can't believe... ](*,)
