Experience the most beautiful sad love story based on a true incident!

In February 1862, the British widow Anna Leonowens arrives at the royal court of Siam with her son Louis. King Mongkut rules his kingdom with a strong hand. Anna instantly falls in love with the numerous children she teaches there.

"So far, this sounds like a Hollywood movie - but it is reality. 100 years later, Yul Brynner conquers a hundred million people with a film blockbuster, a musical and a TV series as a loving grumpy family man and a dignified ruler torn between his feelings towards Anna Leonowens and his crown. The musical with the most beautiful melodies of Rodgers and Hammerstein and bursts of laughter during the 120 minutes of playing time. A personal tip from me: stock up on plenty of tissues for the last ten minutes. I look forward to welcoming you next year at the Royal Court of Siam."
