“The Sound of Music” Musical Drama on Stage in Iran

Tehran’s Vahdat Hall is hosting “The Sound of Music” musical drama, involving 45 instrumentalists, 5 choir singers and 20 singers-actors.

“The Sound of Music” musical is based on a 1959 American stage musical of the same name, composed by Richard Rodgers. It was later made into a musical drama film in 1965 produced and directed by Robert Wise, and starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, with Richard Haydn and Eleanor Parker.

It is the story of a nun. In Salzburg, Austria in 1938, Maria is a free-spirited young postulant at Nonnberg Abbey. Her love of music and the mountains, her youthful enthusiasm and imagination, and her lack of discipline cause some concern among the nuns. The Mother Abbess, believing Maria would be happier outside the abbey, sends her to the villa of retired naval officer Captain Georg von Trapp to be governess to his seven children. The Captain has been raising his children using strict military discipline following the death of his wife. Although the children misbehave at first, Maria responds with kindness and patience, and soon the children come to trust and respect her.

The Iranian version of the musical drama went on the stage in Iran for the first time in 2013 and was warmly received by the audience. This time, the show is on the stage with a different performance.

The musical will be on the stage until August 22, 2019.
