CINCINNATI, OH (November 17, 2022)—The Cincinnati Pops will present the hit international musical sensation Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music in two special screenings on Sunday, February 26, 2023 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Cincinnati Music Hall. Winner of five Academy Awards, the beloved 1965 film, starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, will come to life on the big screen in full technicolor and six-track digital sound*, complete with on-screen lyric subtitles. Audiences are invited to sing along with all of the iconic songs from the film, including “Do-Re-Mi,” “Edelweiss,” “My Favorite Things,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen,” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain.”
A totally immersive and interactive experience, audience members are encouraged to sing, cheer, boo, hiss, and bring out their cell phones to “light up” Music Hall during Christopher Plummer’s rendition of “Edelweiss.” The experience also includes a fun, pre-film vocal warm up, and each audience member will receive a complimentary prop bag to use throughout the film. Creativity is highly encouraged; audience members may sport their lederhosen or come dressed as one of their “Favorite Things” to celebrate their favorite characters or moments in the film.
The Sound of Music film, based on the 1959 Broadway show with original songs by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, premiered on March 2, 1965 in New York City and brought in nearly $160 million at the box office; it continues to rank as one of the highest-grossing films of all time. Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music, produced with Sing-a-Long-a Productions by arrangement with Twentieth Century Fox and the Rodgers and Hammerstein Organization, has attracted sold-out audiences in concert halls across the globe. This will be the first presentation of Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music in Cincinnati.
