Carousel is the second musical by the team of Richard Rodgers (music) and Oscar Hammerstein II (book and lyrics).

The 1945 work was adapted from Ferenc Moln├ír’s 1909 play Liliom, transplanting its Budapest setting to the Maine coastline.

The story revolves around carousel barker Billy Bigelow, whose romance with millworker Julie Jordan comes at the price of both their jobs. He attempts a robbery to provide for Julie and their unborn child; after it goes wrong and he dies he is given a chance to return to earth for a day and make things right. A secondary plot line deals with millworker Carrie Pipperidge and her romance with ambitious fisherman Enoch Snow
