One of the world’s best-loved musicals, “THE SOUND OF MUSIC” is now showing at the MasterCard Theatres, Marina Bay Sands to a star-studded affair, with tickets to the critically acclaimed show being the hottest in town. Due to popular demand, the season has also been extended and will run until 3 December 2017.
This highly-acclaimed production comes from the home of West End musical theatre – the famous London Palladium – where the lavish and dazzling show celebrated a record-breaking 954 performances and was seen by over two million people. In Singapore, the show played to almost 70,000 people during its five-week season in July/August 2014.
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 escape across the Austrian mountains as tensions rise prior to the outbreak of World War II.
With its unforgettable score, THE SOUND OF MUSIC touches the hearts of all ages and contains some of the most memorable songs ever performed on the musical theatre stage including My Favourite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev’ry Mountain, Edelweiss, The Lonely Goatherd, Sixteen Going on Seventeen, and of course the glorious title song The Sound of Music.
Additionally, eighteen of Singapore’s most able young actors and actresses will play the coveted roles of six of the seven von Trapp children, with three children chosen to alternate each character. The children come from all corners of Singapore and will perform in rotation throughout the season as the small and cute Gretl, the brothers Friedrich and Kurt, as well as their sisters Marta, Brigitta, and Louisa.
THE SOUND OF MUSIC’S original score is a result of the genius output of composer Richard Rodgers collaborating with the lyricist and librettist Oscar Hammerstein. The original 1959 Broadway production of THE SOUND OF MUSIC won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and was Rogers and Hammerstein’s biggest success. 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.
Our Take On THE SOUND OF MUSIC
The SOUND OF MUSIC is truly a classic and although it was our first time watching the SOUND OF MUSIC musical, we enjoyed the splendid performance so much that we could not stop humming to the songs. In fact, watching the musical reminded us of the awesome time we had in Europe and we wouldn’t mind watching the Sound of Music a second time.
