The Sound of Music
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
To fully appreciate last nights production of "The Sound of Music", I think you have to have been introduced to the music in the film production of the late 60's. A big age gap from then to now and many young people of this generation do not remember first of all "live broadcasting" and or the era that this movie took place.
The positive was the staging, it was perfect. The music entertaining and enjoyable. Of course this story was romanticized for the movie and stage, but the reality is they escaped over the mountains and came to the United States to settled in New England during a horrific time in our world history.
I had the pleasure of visiting the sites where the movie "The Sound of Music" was filmed in Austria. Salzburg probably one of the most beautiful areas in Austria.
Thumbs up from me for a fine "LIVE" performance from the cast.
