It was also included in Rodgers' rare 1954 album for Columbia Records with the composer conducting the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. Main article: State Fair (1945 film). South Pacific opened on Broadway on April 7, 1949, and ran for over five years. Its songs "Bali Ha'i", "Younger Than Springtime", and "Some Enchanted Evening" have become standards. The play is based upon two short stories by James A. Michener from his book Tales of the South Pacific, which itself was the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1948. In the original production, Mary Martin starred as the heroine Nellie Forbush, and opera star Ezio Pinza starred as Emile de Becque, the French plantation owner. Also in the cast were Juanita Hall, Myron McCormick and Betta St. John.

The rest of the cast are equally too note-perfect. The people who will find this recording the most useful will be people, like myself, who are performers.

Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II's fourth musical, South Pacific, was based on several stories in James A. Michener's book Tales of the South Pacific, specifically two that dealt with wartime romances complicated by racial issues. Those contrasts in turn were embodied by the leads, retired Metropolitan Opera bass Ezio Pinza and Broadway musical comedy star Mary Martin, who managed to have an onstage romance without ever quite singing a duet (the closest thing to that being the appropriately named "Twin Soliloquies"). Opening on Broadway April 7, 1949, South Pacific ran 1,925 performances, longer than any musical before it except Rodgers & Hammerstein's Oklahoma! The score was even more popular, if possible.
Rodgers and Hammerstein had already re-invented the Broadway musical with their pioneering Oklahoma! and Carousel, which integrated dance, story, and song as never before in the service of realistic drama. Now they were dealing head-on with a lines subject that confronted the social changes and tensions sweeping America. In Oscar’s original draft, Emile, who was played by the great opera basso Ezio Pinza, continues the song, declaring, Love is quite different. It grows by itself, and then singing: It will grow like a weed. Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein in New York City, 1949.
