''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 [[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.

* ChekhovsGun: Maria and Captain Von Trapp's knowledge of the mountains in the musical. [[spoiler: It allows them to climb the mountains to navigate a route to Switzerland]].



* CoolOldLady: The Reverend Mother Superior of the convent. She instinctively knows that Maria's calling is outside the convent, and she realizes that Maria is in love with the captain. Not to mention when Maria, at first, told the Reverend Mother she left because she was "frightened". To which the Reverend Mother says, "Frightened, were they unkind to you?" The tone which she uses indicates she is ''very'' protective of the nuns.

The tone which she uses indicates she is ''very'' protective of the nuns.



* DeliberateValuesDissonance:
** Discussed in the musical, where Max and Baroness Schneider point out that the Nazi movement is coming, but Captain Von Trapp refuses to bow his head to a German when he is an Austrian. Max and Schneider point out that he could at least pretend so that they'll leave him alone.
** Maria leaves when Brigitta in the musical and Schneider in the movie tell her that Captain Von Trapp loves her. She leaves because she's frightened at the thought of loving a man and forsaking her dream to be a nun. The Mother Abbess encourages her to pursue her love, to take risks and to find out what that new dream will be.



* FriendToAllChildren: Baroness Schneider in the musical, Maria in both film and musical. The Mother Abbess makes it clear that Maria is good with children.



* GracefulLoser: The Baroness, eventually. One can scarcely blame her for putting up a fight for her love, she's been working on Georg for a long time now.

* GracefulLoser: The Baroness, eventually. One can scarcely blame her for putting up a fight for her love, she's been working on Georg for a long time now. In the musical, however, she gives up the fight for a different reason, in that she and Georg disagree on how to handle the oncoming invasion of Nazis into their country. She is graceful, but the scene where she breaks their engagement is quite heartbreaking.



* HonorBeforeReason: Captain von Trapp's defiant attitude toward Nazis which was almost Churchillian. He could be one scary dude at times.

to:

* HonorBeforeReason: Captain von Trapp's defiant attitude toward Nazis which was almost Churchillian. He could be one scary dude at times. [[spoiler: In the musical this defiance costs him his engagement with Elsa, though she's more broken up about it than he is.]]



* IgnoredEpiphany: [[spoiler: Rolf has a brief moment of taking the Captain up on his offer to run away with his family. Then he alerts the Nazis after rejecting it]].

to:

* HypocriticalHeartwarming: The nuns are split on how they view Maria, given she's not suitable for convent life, but [[spoiler: they protect her and her family when the Nazis come after them]].
* IgnoredEpiphany: [[spoiler: Rolf has a brief moment of taking the Captain up on his offer to run away with his family. Then he alerts the Nazis after rejecting it]]. Inverted in the stage musical, where [[spoiler: Rolf calls the Lieutenant, but then says it's a false alarm after realizing that Liesl would be hurt or killed]].



* JerkassFacade / JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Captain Von Trapp

to:

* JerkassFacade / JerkassFacade: Max, and Captain Von Trapp. Max puts up a front of sucking up to incoming Nazi generals, but the climax makes it clear that he is loyal to his friend Captain Von Trapp.
*
JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Captain Von Trapp



* LoveCannotOvercome: For the [[spoiler: Baroness]] in the musical, she ultimately [[spoiler: breaks off her engagement to the Captain]] when he refuses to bend to the Nazi will, even by pretending. She's heartbroken, but she knows they won't be happy together when the Reich rolls in.



* NotSoDifferent:
** In the stage musical, the Mother Abbess and Maria sing "My Favorite Things" and it was a song that Maria heard when she was watching the Mother Abbess work in the garden and sing.
** Part of the reason that Captain Von Trapp loves Maria is that she shares his HonorBeforeReason love for Austria and the mountains.



* VillainyFreeVillain: The Baroness is shown to genuinely love Von Trapp and her jealousy is mostly justified. Nonetheless, the children despise her after Maria leaves despite her efforts to be motherly towards them. Sure, she inspired Maria to leave, and planned to send the children to a boarding school, but the alternative was to live with a woman her husband loved more than her and seven children who hated her.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatYouAreInTheDark: Max spends most of the stage musical and film acting as a leech and an opportunist to Captain Von Trapp and the Nazis, claiming that it's better to bend to the Reich's will than to fight an inevitable defeat. Come the film's climax, [[spoiler: he warns them via a BatmanGambit during a Music Festival that the Nazis are going to force Captain Von Trapp to work for them, and stalls during the awards to give them enough time to escape.]]
