If you’re feeling in the mood for singing nuns, lonely goats and a bit of “Do-Re-Mi,” you’re in luck, because the national tour of The Sound of Music lands at the Majestic this week. Set in pre-World War II Austria against a dichotomous backdrop of mountainous vistas and an ever-increasing number of Nazi flags, the musical follows Maria Rainer, who becomes governess to the Vonn Trapp children and makes an indelible mark on the family with the power of music. Under the direction of three-time Tony Award winner Jack O’Brien, the production seeks to refresh the beloved musical and introduce it to a new generation, while keeping true to the original material. Just last year, the 1965 film starring Julie Andrews passed its 50th anniversary, and in that time, strains of its classic songs have made an indelible impression on our ears. If you know the tune of “The Sound of Music” but have never experienced the story in full, Broadway in San Antonio’s six-night run presents a top-notch opportunity to see the musical as it was originally envisioned by Rodgers & Hammerstein — on the stage.
