Few Broadway musicals are more beloved than The Sound of Music, and now you can see it live in a production by Lyric Opera of Chicago, with Hollywood star Billy Zane stepping into the role of Captain von Trapp. It's the story of Maria, an aspiring nun who takes a job as governess to the widowed Captain von Trapp's seven children. As she gradually earns the heart of the family -- and their father -- the von Trapps are threatened by the rise of the Nazis, and must figure out how to escape Austria. "My Favorite Things," "Edelweiss," "Do-Re-Mi," "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "The Lonely Goatherd" and the soaring title song are just a few of the unforgettable melodies in this classic work of musical theater. The cast includes opera stars Christine Brewer and Elizabeth Futral, Jenn Gambatese of Broadway's Wicked and All Shook Up, and Edward Hibbert of Frasier. Learn More

Excelelnt acting by the entire cast. A little over by Ross aka Roshan, but he was good and powerful. Avinash was the pick of the lot in our group of friends. Keep it up!! and all the best.
I am sure the play will be well received and do well.

The acting was wonderful and it is not a story that you have seen before! The actors and director and produces all came out for the talk back which made it even more interesting. Great cast all with Indian backgrounds which made it more authentic!
Quotes & Highlights
“A play that has sharp things to say about subjects varying from Indian racism to American consumerism. … It’s intelligent, punchy and pointed.” —The Times (UK)
“Surging with its own comic resilience, the play is a minor marvel.” —The Independent
