The Sound of Music

1959

Music by Richard Rodgers
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse

In its inexhaustible and timeless melodies and romantic setting during one of history’s darkest hours, The Sound of Music remains one of the gemstones of American musical theater. It was the last collaboration, and greatest commercial success, of Rodgers and Hammerstein, who, in their ten musicals beginning with Oklahoma!, immeasurably raised the bar of musical theater concept and production. Set in 1930s Salzburg and inspired by the real-life musical exploits of the von Trapp Family Singers, the show enchanted audiences for almost four years on Broadway and in a 1965 film that became the highest-grossing picture of all time. Hit songs include “Maria,” “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” and “Edelweiss,” as well as several gems not included in the film. Bring the whole family—from your grandchildren to your grandparents.
