A tale for the ages, as relevant now as it was when it was made
on September 1, 2016
There is nothing quite as enthralling as the Sound of Music. I was excited to receive this DVD so that I could share my favourite musical with my daughters. Though its been more than 40 years since the movie version hit the big screen, the magic of the story, and the sweeping songs have not lost their charm. This dvd allows you to join in the shenanigans of the Von Trapp children who aren't immediately fond of their new governess, Maria. Especially Liesl who feels she'd too old to need a governess. Maria quickly earns their trust, and adoration and brings the gift of music back into their home. As she does she attracts the attention of Captain Von Trapp and she has to make a decision between true love and being a nun. The adventures of Maria and the Von Trapp family are set to a marvelous soundtrack by Richard and Hammerstein featuring the ever popular My Favourite Things, Edelweiss and the Lonely Goatherd.
The Sound of Music is more than just a love story. Its a story of hope, of standing up for what you believe in, and finding that special place where you belong in the world. I really could go on about The Sound of Music forever, but you really should just watch yourself.
