The Sound of Music Washington DC Tickets
The Sound of Music Washington, DC TicketsThe Sound of Music is a beloved family classic. It follows the story of Maria—a woman who left the convent to become a governess to a motherless household—the Trapp family. The story is based on the real-life events of Maria von Trapp (née Kutschera) whose family choir toured around Austria and Germany. She then wrote memoirs about her family story which became two films in the 1950s in Germany—The Trapp Family (1956) and The Trapp Family in America (1958). Following the films’ success, Hollywood produced a musical drama picture entitled The Sound of Music in 1965. The film stars Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer. Andrews was nominated for Best Actress for this film.
What is The Sound of Music About?The Sound of Music is about Maria who often forgets her responsibilities to the convent because she loves being in nature. The Mother Abbess sends Maria to work for Captain von Trapp as the governess to his seven children. The militaristic hold he has over his children surprises her, so Maria pursues a different educational method through music. The children take to this approach well, and the family becomes a choir. Maria eventually falls in love with Captain von Trapp only to find out that he is engaged to a Baroness, who asks Maria to leave the Trapp household. Maria returns to the convent, but the Trapp family visits her. Maria confesses her love to the Captain, but he decides to marry the Baroness anyway. Once the Baroness realizes that he is actually in love with Maria, she leaves him. Maria and the Captain get married and go on their honeymoon. When they return, they find Austria occupied by the Nazis. The family goes to the Salzburg Festival Hall where the captain sings "Edelweiss"—a tribute to Austria. The family escapes Nazi oppression by hiding out in the abbey cemetery.
