This 'Carousel' Presents Some Beautiful Music

A repeat Tales classical music post from April of 2016 when the fetching Mrs. B and I attended Houston's Wortham Center for a wonderful production by the Houston Grand Opera of Rodgers and Hammerstein's great musical, "Carousel". 

Written as a stage musical in 1945 by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II and adapted for film in 1956, this epic show tune musical contains some beautiful music, as do all of Rodgers and Hammerstein's musicals. 

Trying to keep somewhat with the classical format, please turn up the volume and listen to this ultra beautiful music from Carousel in symphonic orchestral form.  

Warning:  You may need some Kleenex for the emotional song, "You'll never walk alone", in the fourth video.
