Their father, a wealthy and strict naval officer, recently widowed, needs help with his resentful children. After hiring many different governesses and having them run out by the children, Maria finally steps in. Maria’s kindness and forgiving manner eventually win the children over, and when she introduces them to the joys of music, she gains their father's love and instills a sense of immense passion for love and music in all. Set in the late 1930s, pre-World War II Europe is greatly unsettled. The political tension escalates as Maria’s story develops, and eventually the Von Trapps find themselves facing a decision to leave the country they love. Their love and loyalty prove unshakable as they take on every challenge, together. Join Cantilon Choirs and experience this family favourite through the many memorable songs, compelling characters, and rich story lines. Come experience The Sound of Music.
