The Sound of Music
Surely no one needs me to provide a precis of 'The Sound of Music'; one of the most famous of musical show of all time. The musical is on its third major Australian season since its original staging here in 1961. That was the first and until last week only, time I had seen the musical live on stage.
My memories of the musical are mostly from numerous complete and partial viewings of the film version.
I can report that this current Australian staging meets all expectations. Wonderful if you love the musical and, I guess, sickly sweet if you abhor it.
I loved it. The children are excellent and comparative newcomer Amy Lehpamer is stellar as Maria.
