The hills are alive with this classic story of Maria, a young woman who leaves the nunnery for a job as a governess for naval captain Georg von Trapp. In a home of routine and discipline, the seven von Trapp children take to the light and music Maria imbues in the family. Against the backdrop of the Swiss Alps among a time of increasing unrest, this story of love, music and morality is sure to be one of your favorite things.
