The Sound of Music to open at The Venetian Macao
One of the world’s most popular and successful musicals, The Sound of Music, is coming to The Venetian Macao’s Venetian Theatre from December 20, 2017, to January 7, 2018, to delight audiences over the Christmas and New Year period. Tickets are on sale now.
This highly-acclaimed production comes from the home of West End musical theatre – the famous London Palladium – where it celebrated a record-breaking 954 performances and was seen by over two million people. To add to the excitement, The Sound of Music will feature 18 talented youngsters from Macao and Hong Kong playing the Von Trapp family children.
Based on a true story, The Sound of Music tells the tale of Maria, the fun-loving governess who changes the lives of the widowed Captain Von Trapp and his seven children by re-introducing them to music, culminating in the family’s escape across the Austrian mountains as tensions rise prior to the outbreak of World War II.
Presented by Chessman and The Venetian Macao, The Sound of Music includes some of the most memorable songs ever performed on the stage, including
My Favorite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev’ry Mountain, The Lonely Goatherd, Sixteen Going on Seventeen, and wonderful title song The Sound of Music.
The original Broadway production of The Sound of Music has won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and was Rodgers and Hammerstein’s biggest success. The 1965 movie starring Julie Andrews as Maria also won five Oscars, including Best Picture, and remains one of the most popular movies of all time.
Auditions for the roles of the Von Trapp children were held at The Venetian Macao and Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, with 18 talented Macao and Hong Kong youngsters chosen to play in the show.
Don’t miss this opportunity to experience this dazzling show, widely regarded as the world’s greatest musicals, at The Venetian Macao from December 20, 2017 to January 7, 2018.
