The Sound Of Music takes place in Salzburg, Austria right before the start of World War II. Maria Rainer is a postulant at Nonnberg Abbey, the local Benedictine monastery. Maria’s free-spirited personality worries Mother Abbess about Maria’s candidacy for being a nun. Mother Abbess encourages Maria to spend time outside the monastery to have Maria decide on whether she wants to continue life at Nonnberg Abbey.
Maria is assigned to serve as a governess to the von Trapp family, whose widowed patriarch is left with seven children. Maria falls in love with the children as well as Captain Georg von Trapp and must make the overwhelming decision of leaving the life she has always known to caring for a family that becomes her own. This classic love story told through musical storytelling has been shared with many worldwide and continues to be retold to this day.
