Summary
  • An English governess is hired to teach the King of Siam's children, but ruins the country's traditions during her work
  • "[B]ased on the true story of Anna Leonowens, an English widow who comes to Bangkok in the 1860s to serve as governess to the many children of the King of Siam ... [T]he King is a magnetic and unforgettable figure. When Anna and the King get to know each other, it is mutual respect -- and the surprising lessons they learn from each other -- that leads to one of the most unusual and spellbinding friendships in musical history."--Container
