Scaling new heights in Von Trapp visit

THE streets of Cork came alive to the 'Sound of Music' yesterday as the Von Trapp family launched the upcoming stage production of the hit musical.

Running from July 27 until August 18 at the Cork Opera House, it features family favourites from the legendary musical score including 'Do-Re-Mi', 'The Lonely Goatherd' and 'Sixteen Going on Seventeen'.

After auditioning nearly 1,000 people, director Bryan Flynn secured the name of internationally renowned soprano Cara O'Sullivan, who will play leading lady Mother Abbess.

The Von Trapp children were also on song yesterday as actors Lily Clifton, Molly O'Mahony, Billy Kelly, Patti Maguire, Mark Sampson, Eva O'Leary and Ellie Mullane settled into their stately abode.

Tickets from €25 are available from www.corkoperahouse.ie
