The Sound of Music Portland Tickets
The Sound of Music Portland TicketsMost of us like a musical based on a true story. And The Sound of Music delivers. This moving show follows the journey of misfit nun Maria as she becomes the governess of the Von Trapp children. This is also a story that teaches a valuable history lesson as the audience witnesses the family's brave flight from Nazi rule. At its core, this is a show as much about the healing, uniting force of music as it a show about the triumph of good. As is the case with many of America's legendary Broadway shows, The Sound of Music has a long and storied history. It was first performed on Broadway in 1959, and it was subsequently made into a hit motion picture starring Julie Andrews. Music for the Broadway show was written by legendary Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. Portland, Ore., is a prime location to see The Sound of Music live. As one of the new arts frontiers of America, this vibrant city is home to countless pristine venues. The energetic, dynamic nature of the show itself is almost a reflection of Portland's own creative vortex.
Sounds of The Sound of Music: A Classic ScoreA discussion of this powerful performance is not complete without a discussion of the songs that give The Sound of Music its heart. This is a show that masters the juxtaposition of dark, difficult truth with comic relief. The early number "Maria," posing the question "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?" offers a humorous characterization of the distractible yet lovable main character, while "My Favorite Things" remains one of the most iconic Broadway songs. At the end of Act I, the frisson-inducing inspiration of "Climb Every Mountain" gives audiences something to ponder going into the intermission. In Act II, "Edelweiss" offers a glimpse into Captain Von Trapp's conflict between his own patriotism and his unwillingness to bend to the will of the Third Reich. This musical is somewhat unconventional in its tendency to reprise musical numbers, but this feature helps to keep the storyline cohesive.
