THE SOUND OF MUSIC, is based on the original Broadway musical, starring Carrie Underwood and Stephen Moyer, as Maria and Captain von Trapp, will be broadcast LIVE tonight! 7:00pm CST (8:00 pm EST)
This is the story of Maria, who falls in love with Captain von Trapp and his seven children. It's set against the backdrop of Nazi-occupied Austria. Many of the songs, are familiar to generations, such as "The Sound of Music","My Favorite Things," "Do-Re-Mi," "Sixteen Going on Seventeen," "Climb Every Mountain" and "Edelweiss."
I remember singing these songs in music class and seeing the movie, as a young girl. I'm really excited to see this new version!
This new version of "The Sound of Music" will be a faithful adaptation of the original stage musical, to retell the story for a whole new generation. And more than that, it will be broadcast LIVE, adding a whole new level of immediacy and excitement. Get ready to reintroduce your family to the most joyful, most emotional and most musical family adventure of them all.
