* NeutralAustriansWithNoNavy: Captain Von Trapp served with the Imperial Austrian Navy; the [[ImperialGermany Kingdom of Austria-Hungary's]] territory extended to the Adriatic Sea, until the post-war reparations reduced Austria to the point where it no longer had a seashore, and even though he is tempted by the offer to join the Navy, he ultimately turns it down because he can't stand the Nazis and instead helps Maria and his children to cross the border and escape for Switzerland.

''The Sound of Music'' is the famous musical by Creator/RodgersAndHammerstein, based on the story of ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Story_of_the_Trapp_Family_Singers the Trapp Family Singers]]''. The musical was inspired by an earlier, now largely forgotten German movie adaptation of the book and was made into a movie in 1965, with Creator/JulieAndrews as Maria and Creator/ChristopherPlummer as the Captain. In 1991, the book was again independently adapted in [[Anime/TrappFamilyStory a 40 episode anime]] as part of the ''Anime/WorldMasterpieceTheater'' series. A live broadcast of the original stage production starring Music/CarrieUnderwood and [[Series/TrueBlood Stephen Moyer]] aired on Creator/{{NBC}} in 2013, the first live television presentation of a musical since Rodgers and Hammerstein's ''Film/{{Cinderella}}'' in 1957. Creator/{{ITV}} followed suit in 2015 with its own live broadcast of the stage musical, starring Kara Tointon and Julian Ovenden.

* RevengeByProxy: Sort of. In RealLife, the two oldest boys joined the US army and one of them served as a soldier in the US Tenth Mountain Division, fighting ThoseWackyNazis. Though that's more like YouKilledMyFather except it's "you exiled my father."

** The Captain was in the Austrian Navy. But wait, isn't Austria landlocked? It was in 1939 but ''not'' in 1914, when Austria owned Croatia and had a small but well-trained and well-equipped navy dominating the Adriatic Sea. The Captain was one of Austria-Hungary's most illustrious World War I heroes at sea. He commanded two submarines, the U-5 and U-14, and conducted 19 war patrols during which he sank 11 enemy merchantmen, captured a French armored cruiser and an Italian submarine, and was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Military Order of Maria Theresa.

* IllTakeThatAsACompliment: Herr Zeller says he's flattered when the Captain says he would be the entire trumpet section if the Nazis took over Austria. Makes more sense when you realize that trumpeters are generally regarded as egotistical.

* VoiceTypes: Maria is a soprano, but could be a mezzo, as is The Barroness and Mother Superior. The Captain is a baritone, while Max and Rolf are baritone/tenor crosses. The nuns can come in a variety of voice types, from contralto to soprano. The children have similar ranges, but the girls are technically mezzo-sopranos, while Kurt is a boy soprano and Friedrich, being 14, could be a countertenor (Yes. The voice type that has only 1 other role in musical theatre!) or a tenor with a good falsetto, but of course you need a singer whose voice doesn't crack, or even a boy soprano who is tall enough to look 14.... The only voice type that is not displayed at all is bass, assuming that Friedrich is a countertenor, because the Captain has to hit a high G above middle C in "So Long, Farewell"'s reprise.
