RENOWNED musical, The Sound of Music, officially premiered yesterday in Singapore at Marina Bay Sands’ MasterCard Theatres, tugging at heartstrings with its familiar tunes and bevy of young talent.
Running until August 10, the critically acclaimed production hails from West End’s London Palladium. Both the original 1959 Broadway production and 1965 movie starring Julie Andrews were award winning.
Based on the true story of a nun-turned-governess Maria who brings music and love into the lives of Captain von Trapp and his seven children, expect lively and heartwarming renditions of My Favourite Things, Do-Re-Mi and Edelweiss, among other songs by power duo, Rodgers and Hammerstein.
Shows run at 20.00 from Tuesdays to Fridays, 14.00 and 20.00 on Saturdays, and 12.00 and 18.00 on Sundays. Ticket prices start from S$65 (US$52) for a D Reserve seat to S$780 for a VIP Box of four seats.
