I’d argue that “The Sound of Music” is the rare instance when the movie is better than the stage musical. I’d also argue that just about every other Rodgers and Hammerstein adaptation—OK, except maybe “The King and I”—diminishes rather than elevates the original.

Still the R&H cannon has launched some memorable movie moments. And the scores, in any form, transcend. For this concert, the ISO will be playing the orchestral music of key Rodgers and Hammerstein songs carefully synced to screened scenes. For details, click here or here
