THE SOUND OF MUSIC
The Carsey-Wolf Center is proud to present beloved musical The Sound of Music (1965) in stunning digital projection. The film was adapted from a 1959 Rodgers and Hammerstein stage musical, and based on a memoir by Maria von Trapp. The story of aspiring nun Maria (Julie Andrews) and her appointment as governess to the seven von Trapp children, her romance with the widowed Captain von Trapp (Christopher Plummer), and their flight from Austria in the wake of the rise of Nazism has become one of the highest-grossing U.S. films.
Caryl Flinn (Film, Television and Media, University of Michigan) will join moderator Patrice Petro (Director of the Carsey-Wolf Center) for a discussion of the film and its legacy. In a departure from our usual format, the Q&A session will take place in advance of the screening.
