  • by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II

If you grew up with this iconic Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, then you'll want to experience it at Lyric—and share it with a new generation!

Maria leaves the convent to take over as governess for the seven children of Captain von Trapp. She captures their hearts—and the rest is history. The family's narrow escape from Austria on the eve of WWII is thrilling, inspirational, and true!

This beloved and iconic classic features film star Billy Zane* as Captain von Trapp, Broadway star Jenn Gambatese* as Maria, TV/Stage veteran Edward Hibbert* as Max Detweiler, and international opera stars Christine Brewer as the Mother Abbess and Elizabeth Futral as Elsa Schraeder in a new production from director Marc Bruni* and set designer Michael Yeargan! Other key members of the creative team include: Rob Fisher*, Conductor, Alejo Vietti*, Costume Designer, Denis Jones*, Choreographer, and Michael Black, Chorus Master. (Additional cast and creative team TBA)
