The Sound of Music

If you are a viewer of a certain age, you probably remember when a major movie could be a national cultural event.  In my mind The Sound of Music was one of them.

Lyric Opera is currently mounting what appears to be a top-tier  production of The Sound of Music.  The other night the singer who plays the Mother Abess, Christine Brewer, performed the song Climb Every Mountain on our show.  I thought it was a stunning performance.  Check out the clip below.

And by the way, I was somewhat irritated when I saw an interview with Christopher Plummer, who played Captain Von Trapp in the movie, when he dismissively referred to the movie as The Sound of Mucous.  Really, Christopher?
