This winter, we will bring you the famous original musical of Webber -- The Sound of Music!
The Sound of Music (1959) is a musical with music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and a book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse. It is based on the memoir of Maria von Trapp, The Story of the Trapp Family Singers. Many songs from the musical have become standards, such as "Edelweiss", "My Favorite Things", "Climb Every Mountain", "Do-Re-Mi", and the title song "The Sound of Music".
In 1930s Austria a young girl called Maria, with a religious devotion and a passion for singing, is struggling to fit into life in a convent. When a nearby household needs a governess, she is sent by the Mother Abbess to look after the children of a widowed naval Captain, Georg von Trapp.
Her fun-loving nature and natural creativity soon infect the children and they learn to play and, of course, sing – in contrast to the stern upbringing their father would prefer. The oldest daughter, Liesl, is in love with the local telegram delivery boy, Rolf, while her father is courting a rich Viennese woman, Baroness Schraeder. However, it becomes clear, first to the children and finally to Maria herself, that the Captain is really in love with her.
Meanwhile, Nazism and the eventual occupation of Austria by Germany is casting a shadow over all their lives. The Captain is fiercely patriotic and cannot agree with the Baroness, or his friend Max, about giving in to the inevitable German takeover.
As the family’s predicament becomes more dangerous, Max finds a way out and persuades the Captain to sing with his family at the Salzburg music festival, during which they escape, pursued by soldiers.
