A new stage adaptation of American composer Richard Rodgers’ musical The Sound of Music is currently on stage at Tehran’s Vahdat Hall. Hadi Ghozat is the director of the play, which runs until August 22. A choir composed of 80 vocalists, 50 musicians and 20 actor-singers under the baton of conductor Nassir Heidarian are collaborating on the project. The Sound of Music is based on the memoir of Maria von Trapp, The Story of the Trapp Family Singers. Set in Austria on the eve of the Anschluss in 1938, the musical tells the story of Maria, who takes a job as governess to a large family while she decides whether to become a nun.
