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

Excellent, moving show. Wonderful insights into the lives of five fictional (but so real) American Muslim women. The complimentary tea before the performance really set the mood for all the tea-related plotlines in the show. Appreciated the post-show Q&A and discussion; it was a nice opportunity to talk to the playwright, respond to the stories, listen to others' responses, and extend what was, as I said, an excellent theater-going experience. I highly recommend it.
