Rodgers and Hammerstein's
"The Sound of Music"
One of the most beloved musicals of all time! In Austria, 1938, an exuberant young governess brings music and joy back to a broken family, only to face danger and intrigue as the Nazis gain power. Artistic director, Bruce Jacklin says,"I am excited to rediscover this inspiring story of family, faith, joy, and courage in a world of uncertain times.
"The Sound of Music" premiered at Broadway's Lunt-Fontanne Theatre November 16,1959, where it ran for more than 1,443 performances. Today the musical continues to break box office records and boasts an impressive fan base.
"It's not just the perfect compatibility of music and lyrics that makes audiences flock unremittingly to The Sound of Music. The show can jerk tears from even the driest of eyes. And if that isn't enough, there's the opportunity for a gaggle of children to mesmerise with their talents and charisma. It's a near-perfect recipe." — Peter Brown, LondonTheatre
The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world's most beloved musical. Featuring a trove of cherished songs, including "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "My Favorite Things," "Do Re Mi," "Sixteen Going on Seventeen" and the title number, The Sound of Music won the hearts of audiences worldwide, earning five Tony Awards and five Oscars. The inspirational story, based on the memoir of Maria Augusta Trapp, follows an ebullient postulate who serves as governess to the seven children of the imperious Captain Von Trapp, bringing music and joy to the household. But as the forces of Nazism take hold of Austria, Maria and the entire Von Trapp family must make a moral decision.
