One of the world’s best-loved musicals, The Sound of Music, will tour New Zealand this September and October.
From the producer of the recent touring stage shows Grease, HMS Pinafore, Menopause the Musical and South Pacific, The Sound of Music will be performed in 20 cities throughout New Zealand.
This legendary Rodgers and Hammerstein musical features an unforgettable score that includes some of the most famous songs ever performed on the musical stage.
The Sound of Music tells the uplifting true story of Maria, the fun-loving governess who changes the lives of the widowed Captain von Trapp and his seven children by re-introducing them to music, culminating in the family’s escape across the mountains from Austria.
The musical originally premiered on Broadway in 1959 to record-breaking advance ticket sales, where it won eight Tony Awards – including “Best Musical”. The 1965 Hollywood film, which starred Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, won five Oscars, and quickly became the highest-grossing film in history. Even today, The Sound of Music remains the most successful movie musical in history.
