But as the forces of Nazism take hold in 1938 Austria, Maria and the entire Von Trapp family must make a moral decision. The Sound of Music was the final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become one of the most beloved musicals of all time. Featuring a trove of cherished songs, including "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "My Favorite Things," "Do Re Mi," "Sixteen Going on Seventeen" and the title number, The Sound of Music won the hearts of audiences worldwide, earning five Tony Awards in 1960 for the Broadway production and five Oscars in 1966 for the motion picture.
