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

This was a very good show. It was realistic, entertaining and the actors/actresses were very good. You never felt like you were watching a play; rather, we felt like we were watching an actual drama unfold. I went with my husband, sister and a male cousin. All of us were over 40. There was quite a bit of profanity but, if the play is to be realistic, it would have such language in it, unfortunately. Notwithstanding, a very good play.

Hope VI tells the story of Hope Graves, 6, a high spirited and funny young girl who has become strangely quiet. Hope VI is the journey of her dream and her family’s struggle to survive after the wrecking ball hits the Robert Taylor homes on Chicago’s Southside..
