‘The Sound of Music’ is a musical with music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II. It is based on the memoir of Maria von Trapp, the story of The Trapp Family Singers. Set in Austria on the eve of the Anschluss in 1938, the musical tells the story of Maria, who takes a job as governess to a large family while she decides whether to become a nun. She falls in love with the children, and eventually their widowed father, Captain von Trapp. He is ordered to accept a commission in the German navy, but he opposes the Nazis.

He and Maria decide on a plan to flee Austria with the children. Many songs from the musical have become standards, such as "Edelweiss", "My Favorite Things", "Climb Ev'ry Mountain", "Do-Re-Mi", and the title song "The Sound of Music".

It was adapted as a 1965 film musical starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, which won five Academy Awards. The Sound of Music was the last musical written by Rodgers and Hammerstein; Oscar Hammerstein died of cancer nine months after the Broadway premiere.

Perhaps more than any other song in the movie, “Edelweiss,” which Rodgers and Hammerstein had dreamed up for the 1959 stage musical, speaks to the extent that The Sound of Music has warmed its way into our collective memory. Thinking it was a real folk song—and the Austrian national anthem to boot—Reagan famously played it for the Austrian president at a White House state dinner in 1984.
