Bill Knight's production of the Rogers and Hammerstein's 1959 show "The Sound of Music" was running in the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre recently.
There are many stand-out moments, most notably featuring the operatic nuns at the abbey where Maria is a problem that can’t be solved. At the helm as Mother Abbess was Celine Byrne, a soprano from Naas in Kildare. Her stunning performance of ‘Climb Ev’ry Mountain’ lifted the roof and ensured she received a standing ovation when it came to curtain call each night.
It was quite simply the perfect family Christmas night out and one of the best musicals of all time.
