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

“There is nothing winking or waggish about Hole… the dialogue is most impressive for capturing the awkwardness and pain of thinking people faced with an unthinkable situation-and eventually, their capacity for survival, and even hope." —USA Today_ _ __
