The Sound of Music Opening Night

The legendary musical THE SOUND OF MUSIC has made a triumphant return to Singapore this November. 

I was bursting with excitement upon receiving the invitation to watch the musical show. The Sound of Music is a show that I have been anticipating, I can't wait to reminisce all the familiar songs from 1965 movie.

The hills are alive, with the sound of music at the MasterCard Theatres, Marina Bay Sands. The show will be running from now to 3 December 2017.

Meet and greet with Singapore’s young actors and actresses who will take turn to play the coveted roles of six of the seven von Trapp children. These children will perform in rotation throughout the season as the small and cute Gretl, the brothers Friedrich and Kurt, as well as their sisters Marta, Brigitta, and Louisa.

Catching up with Linda on her Taiwan trip.

The highly-acclaimed production comes from the home of West End musical theatre – the famous London Palladium.

The story took place in Austria where Maria, a nun-in-training, in an Abbey was being sent by Mother Abbess to the widowed Captain von Trapp's home and become the governess to the Captain's seven children.

With Maria coming into the family, she has changed the lives of the widowed Captain von Trapp and his seven children by re-introducing them to music.

The seven children are definitely the highlight of the musical. Other than the eldest child, Liesl, the remaining six children (Friedrich, Louisa, Kurt, Brigitta, Marta and Gretl) are played by Singapore's young talent. All of them did so well and very professionally. They were the stars of the night, amazed us with their vocal and act.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC touches the hearts of all ages and relives some of the most memorable songs including My Favourite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Edelweiss, The Lonely Goatherd, Sixteen Going on Seventeen, and the title song The Sound of Music.

My favourite musical score is Do Re Mi.

Do-re-mi, do-re-mi 
The first three notes just happen to be 
Do-re-mi, do-re-mi

When you know the notes to sing 
You can sing most anything

The musical ended with the family’s escape across the Austrian mountains as tensions rise prior to the outbreak of World War II.

The Sound of Music is a heart warming production that leave a deep impression in me. The legendary musical relives many familiar songs of the young and old. Watching the musical live is definitely different from watching the movie at home, it will make you want to sing along with them. Immerse yourself into the energetic performances through the whole musical.

Thanks for the great night, I truly enjoyed myself at the musical.

Catch the musical now at MasterCard Theatres @ Marina Bay Sands before the musical ended. Ticket price starts from $65 to $185. Click here for more information.


Thanks Linda for the photo.

So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good night 
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight

So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye 
I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye 
Goodbye!
