THE SOUND OF MUSIC
 


The Sound of Music marked the last collaboration between composer Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein and is still regarded by many as the most famous musical of all time. This timeless tale of love, family and the wonder of music itself has rightfully earned a place in the hearts of children and adults the world over. Based partially on Maria Von Trapp's autobiography, The Trapp Family Singers, The Sound of Music includes a remarkable number of popular songs, such as The Sound of Music, My Favourite Things, Climb Every Mountain, Do-Re-Mi, Edelweiss and many more.

The setting for The Sound of Music is Salzburg, Austria, where Maria, a postulant at Nonnberg Abbey, is too free-spirited to accept the discipline of the order easily and frequently escapes to the mountains. Thus, the Mother Abbess arranges for Maria to work as a governess for the wealthy, aristocratic Captain Georg Von Trapp - a widower with seven children. By adding music and outdoor expeditions to the children's normally rigorous schedule, Maria wins the children's hearts. Although Captain Von Trapp is engaged to the elegant socialite, Elsa Schraeder, through the course of the story he falls in love with Maria and eventually marries her. But it is 1938, and the Von Trapp's married life is quickly disrupted by Nazi Germany's annexation of Austria. The family has become well known as an amateur singing group, and after a final appearance at a local contest, they manage to escape and cross the mountains on foot to Switzerland.
