While on assignment, she meets the father of the family, Captain Georg von Trapp (Christopher Plummer in the movie), and the two begin falling in love, all set against the backdrop of the rise of the Nazis in nearby Germany and the von Trapp children gearing up for a singing competition. The show features so many memorable songs by Rodgers and Hammerstein, including “My Favorite Things,” “Climb Every Mountain” and “Edelweiss.”
