The world's best-loved musical, THE SOUND OF MUSIC, comes to Singapore in November, with a dazzling production from the home of West End musical theatre, the famous London Palladium.

This lavish and critically-acclaimed production tells the uplifting true story of Maria, the fun-loving governess who changed 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 as tensions rise prior to the outbreak of World War II.

The original 1959 Broadway production of THE SOUND OF MUSIC won six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and was Rodgers 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.

This iconic show touches the hearts of all ages - don't miss it!

THE SOUND OF MUSIC brims over with some of the most memorable songs ever performed on the musical stage, including My Favorite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev'ry Mountain, Edelweiss, The Lonely Goatherd, Sixteen Going on Seventeen and of course The Sound of Music
