The Sound of Music Media Call

Due to overwhelming demand, the lavish critically acclaimed production THE SOUND OF MUSIC extended its season until 10 August 2014. The world’s best-loved musical, THE SOUND OF MUSIC has opened at The MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands on 11 July 2014, and tickets are now on sale.

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 flight across the Austrian mountains. This iconic musical is sure to work its magic once again, for young and old alike.

With its unforgettable score, THE SOUND OF MUSIC touches hearts of all ages and contains some of the most memorable songs ever performed on the musical theatre stage such as Do-Re-Mi, Edelweiss, The Lonely Goatherd and many classic songs.

The coveted roles of six out of the seven children that form the von Trapp family are played by eighteen of Singapore’s most able young actors and actresses.

 The original 1959 Broadway production of THE SOUND OF MUSIC won six Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The original score is a result of the genius output of composer Richard Rodgers collaborating with the lyricist and librettist Oscar Hammerstein. The original London production was produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber, and with all these has proven THE SOUND OF MUSIC to be timeless to audiences around the world and is not to be missed.

 Lastly, thanks for the invite to The Sound of Music Media Call, which was truly a worthwhile indulgence for me.
