Opening Night of The Sound of Music In Dublin

The audience had to restrain themselves from singing along at?the opening night of The Sound of Music?in The Bord Gais?Energy Theatre Dublin. We’re not sure how they resisted the temptation.

The Sound of Music tells the true story of the world-famous singing family, from their romantic beginnings and search for happiness, to their thrilling escape to freedom as their beloved Austria becomes part of the Third Reich at the start of WWII. The story was inspired by Maria von Trapp’s 1949 autobiography which led to the Rodgers & Hammerstein?Broadway musical in 1959.

The unforgettable score features some of the most memorable songs ever performed on stage, including ?Edelweiss?, ?My Favorite Things?, ?Do-Re-Mi?, ?Climb Ev?ry Mountain?, ?So Long, Farewell? and of course, the title song, ?The Sound of Music’.
Joining Danielle and Steven are West End stars Jan Hartley (Phantom of the Opera and West Side Story) and Sarah Soetaert (Chicago) who will play the Mother Abbess and Baroness Elsa Schrader, respectively, with Howard Samuels as Max, Grace Chapman as Liesl, Luke George as Rolf, Kate Milner Evans as Frau Schmidt and Martin Dickinson as Admiral Von Schreiber.
