World tour of The Sound of Music sets Manila leg in March

The musical loved by generations goes onstage, a runup to its 65th birth anniversary

The international tour of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music, produced by Broadway International Group, will have its Manila leg from March 7 to 26,  2023. This is a new international production to be staged at Samsung Performing Arts Theater at the Circuit, Makati.  Tickets are now on sale and available online at and TicketWorld outlets.

This iconic musical tells the uplifting true story of Maria, the fun-loving governess who changes the lives of the widowed Captain von Trapp and his seven children by putting music in their lives, and leading the family in the daring escape to the Austrian mountains as tensions rise before the outbreak of World War II.

The Sound of Music is celebrating its 65th debut anniversary in 2024, with a record of five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and the Grammy Award for Best Show Album, for its original run. It has since entertained generations of audiences in live productions across the world, as has the classic film starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, which won five Oscar Awards, including Best Picture.

The Sound of Music was composed by Richard Rodgers, with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, based on a book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse, suggested by The Trapp Family Singers led by Maria Augusta Trapp. The tour production highlights the original creative work of three-time Tony Award® winning director Jack O’Brien (Hairspray, Henry IV, The Coast of Utopia), Broadway choreographer Danny Mefford, and Musical Supervision by Andy Einhorn, with the award-winning Broadway creative, design, and production team of  Matt Lenz, original tour restaging; James Gray, original choreography restaging, Douglas Schmidt, set design; Jane Greenwood, costume design; Natasha Katz, lighting design; and Shannon Slaton, sound design.

Eric Cornell is general manager for Broadway Asia International. Simone Genatt, Marc Routh and Broadway International Group are producing, with co-producers Roy Furman, Broadway Asia Group, Cornice Productions and Gabrielle Palitz, in association with GMG Productions.

The Sound of Music is presented in special arrangement with Concord Theatricals, NETWorks Presentations and Broadway Asia Company. For more information,

About Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein II

After long and highly distinguished careers with other collaborators, Richard Rodgers (Composer, 1902-79) and Oscar Hammerstein II (Librettist/Lyricist, 1895-1960) joined forces in 1943 to create the most successful partnership in American Musical Theatre. Before joining forces, Rodgers collaborated with lyricist Lorenz Hart on musical comedies that epitomized wit and sophistication (Pal Joey, On Your Toes, Babes In Arms, and more), while Hammerstein brought new life to operetta and created the classic Show Boat with Jerome Kern. Oklahoma!, the first Rodgers & Hammerstein musical, introduced an integrated form that became known as “the musical play.” Their shows that followed included Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I, and The Sound of Music. Collectively, the Rodgers & Hammerstein musicals have earned Tony, Oscar, Grammy, Emmy, Pulitzer, and Olivier Awards. The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization is a Concord Company,
