Win a family pass to The Sound of Music at the National Concert Hall


The National Concert Hall are giving four lucky Irish Times readers the chance to win a family pass plus a signed programme to The Sound of Music, for January 2nd, 2023. The classic family musical on stage with an incredible cast of Irish talent, orchestra, chorus and dancers.

The hills are alive this Christmas in The National Concert Hall for the musical of all musicals – the wonderful The Sound of Music. Festival Productions - the team that brought you ‘Oliver!’, ‘Annie’, ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and ‘Bugsy Malone’ - returns with this all-singing, all-dancing production of the classic Julie Andrews film, winner of five Academy Awards and much loved by generations. This lavish production features a star-studded cast, spectacular costumes and sets, and the wonderful festival chorus, dancers and orchestra.

Director Tony Finnegan is joined by a multi award winning production team to create this magical Christmas show. Lose your heart to the story of Maria, the young Austrian postulant who is sent to the home of a austere naval officer and widower, Captain Von Trapp to be governess to his seven children. After bringing love and music into the lives of the family, they find a way to survive the loss of their homeland to the Nazis. The Sound of Music is brim-full of the songs you know and love; My Favourite Things, Do-Re-Mi, So Long, Farewell, Climb Every Mountain and Edelweiss.

The Sound of Music at the NCH this Christmas. For 11 performances only.

This competition is now closed.
