THE SOUND OF MUSIC @ V&A WATERFRONT (23 Mar)
Just like The Wizard of Oz, The Sound of Music has ingratiated itself in pop culture to the point of ridicule. From spinning through the hills with automatic weapons to constant sitcom references, it's very difficult to avoid The Sound of Music or people breaking into song "The hills are alive…". This is just a testament to the popularity of the musical, which in its time was a massive box office sensation with many people returning to the cinemas to watch it again and again. The brilliant and unforgettable soundtrack drives dazzling colours and epic vistas of the Austrian Alps as the ever-enchanting Julie Andrews waltzes into our hearts. It garnered 10 Oscar nominations in its year, winning five of them including best picture. A crowd pleaser, this Rodgers and Hammerstein musical has all the right ingredients for a feelgood movie whether you sing along or not.
This colourful and infectious musical is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.
