The Sound of Music
The final collaboration between famed musical duo Rodgers and Hammerstein, The Sound of Music presents a tale of romance and political intrigue set in pre-World War II Austria. Based on true events, the plot follows the tale of the multitudinous von Trapp family and their singing governess, Maria, as she brings joy back to the house, falls in love with the stern patriarch Georg, and uncovers the sinister secrets planted in Salzburg's foothills. The show delights audiences with classic musical magic, enchanting ears with such beloved songs as "Do-Re-Mi," "My Favorite Things," and "Sixteen Going on Seventeen."
