Program Notes

Lerner and Loewe's spectacular 1951 Broadway production, produced two decades later in film version by Paramount, is set in the 1853 gold rush atmosphere of California. It traces the history of a mining camp from its change as a rugged boom town to a ghost city. The effect of a woman's touch on the rough and tough life of a gold panner is the basic motif upon which the story is built.

This arrangement by John Cacavas includes There's a Coach Comin' In, Wand'rin' Star, I'm on My Way, I Still See Elisa, I Talk to the Trees, and They Call the Wind Maria.
