The musical is based on the 1949 memoir of Maria von Trapp, named as The Story of the Trapp Family Singers. The Sound of Music was set in Austria on the eve of the Anschluss in 1938. The musical revolves around the story of Maria, who takes a job as governess to a large family. She considers whether to become a nun but falls in love with the children, and eventually starts loving their widowed father as well, Captain von Trapp. The father is ordered to accept a commission in the German navy, but the captain opposes the Nazis. Maria, along with the father, plans to flee Austria with the children.
