Set in pre-WWII Austria, The Sound of Music is based on the romantic true story of Maria von Trapp, an aspiring nun who leaves her abbey to become a governess for the widower Captain von Trapp's seven children. Maria soon finds herself falling in love with her employer and questioning her religious calling. The musical premiered on Broadway in 1959, where it broke box-office records and won the Tony Award for Best Musical.
