EDITORS’ NOTES

This Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, about a wayward nun sent to watch over a retired general’s seven children, boasts some of the mid-20th century’s most indelible songs—the ebullient melody lesson “Do-Re-Mi,” the comforting “My Favorite Things,” the jaunty “So Long, Farewell,” and the anthemic title track. Julie Andrews’ tour-de-force performance as the irrepressible Maria anchors the ensemble, with her honeyed soprano giving extra bounce to the playful “The Lonely Goatherd” and adding emotional resonance to the love duet “Something Good.”
