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 !
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"
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 !
