“The hills are alive, with the sound of music…”

Presented by Pieter Toerien, with Cape Town Opera, The Sound Of Music returns to South Africa in 2023/4. 

The world’s most loved musical returns to South Africa this December!

Pieter Toerien, with Cape Town Opera, presents the much-anticipated revival tour of Rodgers & Hammerstein‘s classic musical, The Sound Of Music.

Performances begin at the Artscape Opera House on 14 December 2023; the show is the perfect holiday treat for the entire family.

Johannesburg theatre fans will soon after have an opportunity to revel in this full-scale musical masterpiece, from 27 January 2024 at The Teatro at Montecasino.

“Of all the shows we have presented over the years, The Sound Of Music remains in the top five most requested shows by our audience. We are thrilled to be able to present this wonderful show to a whole new generation of musical fans”, says Toerien.

The Sound Of Music marks the 11th and final collaboration between legendary lyricists Rodgers & Hammerstein, and features a treasure trove of popular show tunes, including ‘My Favorite Things’, ‘Edelweiss’, ‘Climb Ev’ry Mountain’, ‘Do-Re-Mi’, ‘Sixteen Going On Seventeen’, and many more.

The inspirational story, based on the memoir of Maria Von Trapp, follows a young nun in-training 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 original stage production won six Tony awards, including Best Musical, and was then adapted into the five-time Oscar-winning film, which went on to become the most-successful movie musical of all time.

Directed by Steven Stead, this new production, with sumptuous sets and costumes, and songs that will stay with you long after the curtain comes down, will be a stellar theatrical event.
