THANKS to our friends at the Cork Opera House we have a family pass to give away for two adults and two children worth €100 to see The Sound of Music on Wednesday, August 8th.

To be in with a chance of winning email your answer and contact details to the following question to:

Q. Who played Captain Georg von Trapp in the 1965 movie version of The Sound of Music?

The classic tale of the Von Trapp family’s flight over the Austrian Alps receives a new lease of life under Flynn’s guiding hand, as the Opera House stage is transformed and a memorable musical score, featuring such unforgettable songs such as ‘My Favourite Thing’, ‘Do-Re-Mi’, ‘Climb Ev’ry Mountain’ and of course the glorious title number, ‘The Sound of Music’ are re-created by musical director David Hayes’ superb orchestration.

In what will be their first time playing opposite each other, acclaimed actor and singer,  Michael Sands and favourite leading lady, Carol Anne Ryan, will take the lead parts of Captain Von Trapp and Maria Reiner, with internationally renowned soprano, Cara O’Sullivan as Mother Abbess and the much celebrated Donna Roche, Shayron Hobbs and Laoise O’Hanlon playing the lead nuns.

The Sound of Music is at the Cork Opera House from Friday, July 27th to Wednesday, August 18th.
