Fill your heart with a story of bravery and love as Cambridge Operatic Society revive the beloved musical The Sound of Music in a sparkling new production.

Austria, 1938. Join the free-spirited, life-loving Maria as she leaves Salzburg’s nunnery Nonnberg Abbey to tutor the seven von Trapp children. Teaching them how to sing becomes the catalyst for a new way of life for the children and for their strict father, the widowed Captain von Trapp, to understand what is truly important in life.

Mark Turnbull, director of CaOS’ previous production of My Fair Lady, returns to lead a multi-talented local cast in what is arguably the world’s favourite musical. The creative team also includes Musical Director Lucas Elkin and choreographer Kathie Pugh.

With characters as joyful and fresh as mountain air, and featuring much loved songs such as Do-Re-Mi, My Favourite Things and How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?, you’ll never forget The Sound of Music!
