The hills will come alive again this November, as The Sound Of Music returns to Singapore – the first major international musical so far to take the stage in the region since the pandemic.

Set in pre-World War II Austria, it tells the story of Maria, a lively governess who brings music back into the home of wealthy widower Captain von Trapp and his seven children.

This is the third time the production has come to Singapore. It was last there in 2017.

It is produced by Broadway International Group and its founders Simone Genatt and Marc Routh, and presented by Base Entertainment Asia at Sands Theatre.

The Sound Of Music, with music by Richard Rodgers and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, is one of the most acclaimed Broadway musicals of all time, winning five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and the Grammy Award for Best Show Album. It was adapted into a Oscar-winning film starring Julie Andrews in 1965.

Its iconic songs include My Favourite Things, Do-Re-Mi and the titular The Sound Of Music.

Genatt and Routh say in a joint statement: "We have been eager to bring this beautiful production to Asia for years and are certain that Singapore is a very good place to start to launch this highly anticipated global tour."

The pair have worked on various international productions of The Sound Of Music for over 25 years. – The Straits Times/Asia News Network
