You can catch The Sound of Music at the Civic Theatre in Auckland from October 3 to 19. The Sunday Express UK called it a “lavish family treat”… Sky News UK said, “Beg, borrow or steal a ticket”... and the Daily Telegraph UK said, “I left with a spring in my step and a smile on my face. Suddenly the world seemed a brighter place.”
The Sound of Music is the world’s best-loved musical and it comes to Auckland with a dazzling production from the home of West End musical theatre, the famous London Palladium.
This lavish and critically-acclaimed production 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 through her love of music.
Joining the 30-strong cast as the Mother Abbess is international opera star Lesley Garrett, reprising her critically acclaimed role in the original London production.
With its unforgettable Rodgers & Hammerstein score The Sound of Music touches the hearts of all ages and brims over with some of the most memorable songs ever performed on the musical stage. Many musicals survive on one or two hits but in The Sound of Music it is hit after hit including Maria, My Favourite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Edelweiss, Climb Ev’ry Mountain, The Lonely Goatherd, Sixteen Going on Seventeen, So Long Farewell and of course the glorious title song The Sound of Music. The stage production was in 1959, the movie came out in 1965 and it is still the perfect family treat!
