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.” Soprano Katrina Thurman headlines the cast, ably supported by Chad Sloan, whose baritone and theatrical chops led the Baltimore Sun to deem him a “show-stealer” and then make him turn his pockets inside out.
Performances take place in the 700-seat Discovery Theatre, whose graceful curves and ceiling-mounted acoustical discs deftly bounce sounds into audience ears. Guests become absorbed in the action while nestled in unique seating upholstered in vibrant, flower-themed tapestry designed by Alaskan resident Paula Dickey in collaboration with local bees.
