The Sound of Music returns to the Rochester Opera House

Published on

For the first time in nearly a quarter century, the Rochester Opera House presents The Sound of Music, opening Friday, July 29th. The show will run with multiple performances until Sunday, August 21st.

About the show:
The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world’s most beloved musical. Featuring a trove of cherished songs, including “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “My Favorite Things,” “Do Re Mi,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen” and the title number, The Sound of Music won the hearts of audiences worldwide, earning five Tony Awards and five Oscars. The inspirational story, based on the memoir of Maria Augusta Trapp, follows an ebullient postulate who serves as governess to the seven children of the imperious Captain von Trapp, bringing music and joy to the household. But as the forces of Nazism take hold of Austria, Maria and the entire von Trapp family must make a moral decision.

The Rochester Opera House is a nonprofit organization, located above City Hall, at 31 Wakefield Street, Rochester, NH. Free parking is available at City Hall, on Wakefield Street, and around downtown Rochester. For tickets, visit www.rochesteroperahouse.com or call (603) 335-1992.
