- The Sound of Music
The Sound of Music is a legendary musical based on the Von Trapp family in war-torn Austria, and featuring the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein, celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2015.
The story became familiar to audiences everywhere after the release of the 1965 film starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer.
"Based on Baroness Maria von Trapp's 1949 autobiography, this wonderfully lavish new production tells the story of the Von Trapp family's plight and their ultimate flight across the Swiss mountains to escape the German invasion of their beloved homeland. The unforgettable score features some of the most memorable songs ever performed on stage, including Edelweiss, My Favorite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev'ry Mountain, and of course, the title song The Sound of Music."
