Maria, of course falls in love with Captain Georg von Trapp, but alas he has become engaged to Elsa out of a duty to provide a mother for his seven children.
Sensing that she would not be comfortable staying there after the marriage she returns to the abbey to take her monastic vows, but the Mother Abbess tells Maria she is running away from her feelings.
So many obstacles were overcome in this story for Maria and Georg to finally realize their love. Of course the rest of the story you know ~~~ they lived happily ever after.
Then there was the sweet love between Liesel and Rolf which of course gave me pause to dream of love for me as a young teenage girl.
This is one of my mother's favourite movies so I hope she enjoys the play.
In Toronto over the past few days a massive protest by the Tamils is blocking road traffic very near the theatre district, so I decided we would be better off to take public transportation downtown.
Tomorrow I'll post an update to let you know how the play was.
