The Sound of Music

La melodie de bonheur in French, Sonrisas y lágrimas in Spanish, Meine Lieder, meine Träume in German, Tutti insieme appassionatamente in Italian, Música no Coração in Portugese… this must the the film with more names in the history of Hollywood. The sound of Music is also a musical on the stage and now we can watch it in Galway, in the Town Hall Theatre

‘The Sound of Music’, based on the real-life story of the Von Trapp family, tells the story of a woman, Maria, who leaves an Austrian convent to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. As the story unfolds, Maria falls in love with the stern captain only to be forced to flee as the Nazis invade Austria. The original Broadway musical was made into a beloved five-time Oscar winning movie featuring Julie Andrews as Maria. ‘The Sound of Music’ is an audience favourite and among the most celebrated title in musical theatre.

This is not a professional show but it has, among others, with the  experienced director Seán and Brian Power. He has produced  at the Town Hall theatre Galway over the past 22 years with Renmore Pantomime, Galway Musical Society and Power Performance Academy with shows like ‘Peter Pan’, ‘Seussical and last years ‘Oliver’ among others.

I have to confess I have never watched the movie, still, I know the words of some songs… in Spanish, tough. So if you want to start learning them in English with me, here you have a video from the 1965 movie:
