SOUND OF MUSIC
   Art has a way of awakening senses and making you feel alive. Art shakes off the dreariness of everyday life, as you inhale the beauty of a live musical performance. "The Sound of Music" at The Hyderabad Public School, Begumpet was one such exquisite musical that left the audience spell-bound. Set in Austria on the eve of the Nazi annexation of the country, the Sound of Music tells the story of Maria, a nun-in-training, who is assigned to be a governess for widower Captain Von Trapp`s seven children. She reintroduces music to the household, falls for the patriotic Captain, and together, they have to make some life-changing decisions after the Nazis arrive. The set switches smoothly from an abbey to Captain Von Trapp`s mansion and to the magical Alps. The ease of the transitions of the sets and how real they appeared captivated the audience. Particularly beautiful were the almost-real stained glass in the abbey during the wedding scene and the rounded banister and the chandelier in the mansion. The Nazi flags hanging behind the Von Trapp family in their last performance before fleeing, had a visceral and shocking impact; it felt like we were part of that era. The cast was fantastic - the youngest member of the cast was perfect. The direction, orchestration, and choreography evoked every memory you might have of this story. Shilpika, as Maria, brings gravity and innocence to the role. She seemed to have had a great time performing the role. Aahlad (Captain Georg Von Trapp) maintained the discipline and aura of a Naval Captain with his stern and dignified bearing. Areeba (The Mother Abbess) plays a central role in urging Maria back into the arms of the Captain by singing the song "Climb Ev`ry Mountain." So beautiful. However, the biggest stars of the evening were the young talents who played the Von Trapp children: Ankit(Friedrich), Ahana(Louisa), Aman(Kurt), Subblakshmi(Brigitta), Katyani(Marta) , and Olivia (Gretl) sang so well together and were extremely poised. Together, they lit up the stage whenever they appeared, from the moment they come marching down the stairs to the time they sang, "So long, farewell. Auf wiedersehen, goodbye." The costumes enhanced the shows authenticity and set the tone. Maria went from her nun habit to a plain outfit to a sophisticated one as her positions were elevated. Maria`s wedding gown and veil added to the beauty of the wedding scene. The lovely choreography complemented the show. The dance scene between Captain Von Trapp and Maria cemented their relationship and was a key to the show. Finally, of course, there were the songs - each one a classic. Indelible, indestructible, magnificently structured, they make The Sound of Music worth watching over and over, again. All the songs were rendered by the School Choir. A musical like THE SOUND OF MUSIC is universal. It transcends race, culture and most importantly, age. It was a warm, musical welcome from children singing our childhood favourites. The Musical is timeless, which is why you`re bound to enjoy it equally with friends, family or even if you`re all by yourself. There was nothing like watching 400 students perform the musical live on stage at The Hyderabad Public School, Begumpet. This stunning performance of The Sound of Music was a must watch and something that the Hyderabad audience will remember for a very long time to come.
