In The Sound of Music, a true story, Maria, a postulant nun proves too high-spirited for the religious life, and is despatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain’s immediate service in their navy. The family’s narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides a thrilling and inspirational finale.
The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein, The Sound of Music has become one of the world’s most beloved musical, and the motion picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time.
