Post subject:  Carrie and Mr. Snow vs. Tuptim and Lun Tha

These two secondary love affairs in R&H musicals have set me thinking that they can be similar, even though King & I suggests lots of premonitions of SOM. When I watch Carousel I keep thinking to myself that I would root for Carrie and Mr. Snow to be successful in their romance, but Jigger comes along and forces Mr. Snow to walk out on her - and lead Billy to his own self-destruction. I also come to root for Tuptim and Lun Tha's love to blossom even in the face of the King's opposition, but then the King's open opposition ends their love (with Lun Tha's death) and also Anna's warmth to the King. It seems unusual that in these situations the secondary love affair leads to the undoing of the primary love affair.
