The Sound of Music - 1998 - Broadway

Based on The Trapp Family Singers by Maria Augusta Trapp

Based on an inspiring true story, “THE SOUND OF MUSIC” is one of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s most beloved musicals. Set in Austria on the brink of WWII, Maria a postulant, proves too high-spirited for the religious life and is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain.

Though new fresh takes on movies can be uplifting and eye opening in terms of theme or message, there are some stories that I believe should never be remade. The possibility of remakes ruining classics is something to think about as the movie industry struggles to find new plot lines for people to enjoy for many years to come.

While it seems impossible to bring the theatrics of musical theatre to TV screens on a weekly basis, when you get down to it, television provides an insanely wide array of opportunities. However, just like movie musicals, its history is filled with ups and downs, and even nowadays networks struggle to find that balance.

Overture and opening scene. The choral of nuns. It’s a beautiful, melodic and gorgeous song to begin with, but this rendition is just angelic. If Sunday mass would be so good in actual church, I would convert immediately and be there front row every week. Lead by Mother Superior (opera singer Francis van Broekhuizen), you’re looking forward to another song with the nuns. Francis is a delicious Mother Superior. She’s down to earth, warm, understanding yet strict and finally, present us with the most heart-felt rendition of Climb Every Mountain I’ve ever heard.
