The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world's most beloved musical.

The inspirational story, based on the memoir of Maria Augusta Trapp, follows Maria, an ebullient postulant who serves as governess to the seven children of the imperious Captain Von Trapp, bringing music and joy to the household.
