'Sound of Music Live' Full Soundtrack Stream - LISTEN HERE!

Carrie Underwood will be coming into your living room live on Thursday (December 5) for her performance as Maria in The Sound of Music‘s live production, but you can listen to the full soundtrack here right now!

The 30-year-old entertainer is joined in the cast of the NBC special by Stephen Moyer as Captain Von Trapp, Audra McDonald as Mother Abbess, Christian Borle as Max Detweiler, and Laura Benanti as Elsa Schrader.

The Sound of Music follows a woman who leaves an Austrian convent to become a governess to the children of a Naval officer widower. The live show will be following the Broadway musical rather than the Julie Andrews film.

Make sure to tune in to the live special on Thursday at 8/7c on NBC!

Someone asked some guy why this is being done and he said some asinine crap about the younger generation not knowing about TSOM. BS! Who doesn’t know about the original?! I own it! I love it and have NO intentions of seeing this one.

NBC has the rights to the play, which the movie was based on. They are remaking the original play and not the movie.

People are grousing about this and the truth is that it’s the original as presented on Broadway (in 1959) and is not the movie. There are songs in the play that were not in the movie (Ordinary Couple, How Can Love Survive, No Way To Stop It) and there was a song used in the movie that was not used in the stage presentation (Something Good.) It also has the original orchestrations of Robert Russell Bennett. It’s the representation of the stage play. It’s not the movie!

Now that I’ve listened to the whole thing I have to say that I’m pretty impressed. Of course I haven’t seen the live thing on NBC (which I’m hoping to Thursday) but as far as the quality of the singing it seems top notch. I’ll admit because I’m not a country devotée I was not familiar with Carrier Underwood, but she was terrific! The other singers were fine as well though I did think that Steven Moyer’s voice was a bit “reedy” to my ears he was absolutely very musical. My opinion on Audra McDonald is that she sounded very good, but there was something that I can’t quite put my finger on that somehow didn’t work somewhat. I’m not sure what it was but it was very musical. Overall, I’ve got to say that it was a good performance. I can’t help but compare it to the original with Mary Martin, but that was over fifty years ago.

@Love The Shoes: I want to know the original play, with the original dialogue and songs. They left out the two wittiest songs, they left out a lot of the dialogue that helps us understand the characters when they made the movie. If people want to watch the movie instead they are free to get their sugar rush with the video whenever they want. This may be the only way for millions of people like myself to see it performed as it was written by the people who created the original show.

@Joseph Singer: Mary Martin was a wonderful Maria, the original and the best, when I read people rant as if Julie Andrews created the role and therefore owned it somehow I get dismayed by the ignorance of people.

Ms. McDonald and all of the other singers who played the nuns were ‘superb!!! I also loved the lady who played Frauline Shrader( the fiancee of the captain).

I love Carrie as a country singer. It’s not her fault that she was out of her comfort zone because she is not a Broadway actress. She is very brave for attempting such a huge role.

I love musicals so I’m always happy to hear good singing and the “nuns” did not disappoint.

Gag Me! As an audio guy for 40 years, what were they thinking?!
Whoever decided to put those fans onstage to make the leaves move had a good idea BUT the audio was terrible! All you could hear between cuts / dialog was hash / noise! The mix was terrible at times, the vocals not coming over the orchestra nearly enough. Individual performances and singing were often great, the acting was so-so. Carrie’s a neat kid but she couldn’t act her way out of a paper bag. It hurt to watch so much I had to go to bed and escape the pain. Beautiful sets, poor acting coaches. Timing is key, facial expressions so valuable, this was not even a close copy of the original. I will never watch or listen to this version again and I’m a theater guy!

and one more thing…..

without decent German accents, without pronouncing the German properly, his is a travesty! at least some of the kids used froy-line instead of frow-line. After WWII, the American soldiers that chased (and too often took) the love of German girls used the improper pronunciation, it came to be an insult…. c’mon NBC, do some research! A professional actor should be just that and voice and inflection are that much more important!
