Enjoy an open-air Sound of Music this month
A visit to the enchanting Regent's Park Open Air Theatre in central London could yield a special treat for fans of Julie Andrews and all things Alpine.
From now until September 7th, fans of the legendary musical The Sound of Music are invited to head down to this unique venue to take in arguably the greatest show of its kind ever produced.
With music and lyrics from the legendary duo of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, this popular story has garnered fans across the globe, helped no end by the 1965 film version featuring Julie Andrews in one of her most iconic roles, Maria von Trapp.
The movie has achieved something approaching cult status in the western world, with fans regularly meeting in fancy dress to enjoy sing-along screenings at locations in the capital.
But this particular performance offers something different to those familiar with the details of musical and newcomers looking to see what all the fuss is about.
After all, where else in the world could you enjoy an open-air production - one of those increasingly rare delights of the theatrical world - as well as seeing a new take on a familiar classic.
Few locations compare to the enchanting surroundings of Regent's Park either, despite it being so close to the busy hubbub of city life.
It all makes for the perfect addition to an extended visit to the city, made possible by the variety of luxury hotels in London.
That said, with such a fantastic array of familiar songs on offer as part of the show, visitors could soon find the venue taking second place to the onstage action.
Boasting timeless classics such as Do-Re-Mi and My Favourite Things, along with Climb Ev'ry Mountain and Sixteen Going on Seventeen, the chances are that at least one of these now-iconic songs will stick in your mind.
Whether it's the Baker Street, Regent's Park or Great Portland Street tube stops, getting to this great venue should be no problem - so make sure you don't miss out.
