The world’s best-loved musical, The Sound of Music, comes to New Zealand from September with a lavish production from the home of West End musical theatre, the famous London Palladium.
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. Britain’s most popular soprano, Lesley Garrett CBE has 14 solo CDs to her credit and regularly performs in operas, in concert and on TV.
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 through her love of music.
The original Broadway production won six Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The 1965 movie starring Julie Andrews as Maria won five Oscars, including Best Picture, and remains one of the most popular movies of all time.
The Sound of Music brims over with some of the most memorable songs ever performed on the musical theatre stage, including Sixteen Going on Seventeen, Climb Ev’ry Mountain and Do-Re-Mi.
This iconic show touches the hearts of all ages – don’t miss it!
