When i saw banners and posters of The Sound of Music hanging around in Marina Bay Sands (MBS), i knew i had to watch this musical!!!
I grew up with many of the songs from The Sound of Music like Do-Re-Mi, Edelweiss, My Favourite Things etc. Watching this musical brought back many fond memories of my childhood.
Was ecstatic to be presented 2 tickets to The Sound of Music by Mastercard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands.
The musical officially started at 8pm but doors were opened at 7.30pm. People started filling up the place. Food and beverages were sold right outside the theatres.
Programs, souvenirs and other merchandises were available for sale too.
The theatre was filled to the brim, this was a weekday.
The Sound of Music tells the true story of Maria Rainer, the fun-loving governess who changed the lives of the widowed Captain Von Trapp and his seven children by reintroducing them to music. She came to the family to tutor the children who were all home schooled and educated them through music and touched their hearts with her sincerity.
The original 1959 Broadway production of The Sound of Music won six Tony awards, including Best Musical, and was Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammeretein’s biggest success. The 1965 movie starring Julie Andrews as Maria won five Oscars, including Best Picture. The original London production was produced by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Carrie Underwood was Maria in the American production.
Enjoyed every bit of this musical, the songs couldn't stop playing in my head after it ended!
A musical for all ages, not to be missed :)
