The Houston Grand Opera's rendition of "The Sound of Music" is a delightful and refreshing take on the classic musical. Despite initial skepticism from some opera enthusiasts about an opera company taking on such a traditionally Broadway-centric production, the performance appears to have exceeded expectations.

One of the standout aspects of the production is the remarkable portrayal of the Von Trapp children, performed brilliantly by Tori Tedeschi Adams, Peter Theurer, Annie Voorhees, Antonio Rico, Macie Joy Speer, Abigail Lee, and Lora Uvarova. Their talent and enthusiasm evidently brought joy to the audience, showcasing the beauty of young performers honing their skills.

Isabel Leonard's portrayal of Maria Rainer as a mezzo-soprano is commendable, especially in her harmonious chemistry with both the children and the stern Captain George Von Trapp, played by Alexander Birch Elliott. Such strong character dynamics contribute significantly to the immersive experience of the performance.

Moreover, the ensemble cast's vocal prowess shines through, with memorable tunes like "My Favorite Things," "Do-Re-Mi," and "Climb Every Mountain" leaving a lasting impression. The meticulous attention to detail in sets and lighting further enhances the overall atmosphere, a hallmark of Houston Grand Opera's productions.

Overall, the Houston Grand Opera's rendition of "The Sound of Music" offers a captivating and memorable experience for theatergoers, blending talent, charm, and musicality to create a production worthy of applause.
