Resorts World Manila: The Sound of Music

I am not a fan of Musical Plays and I can't imagine myself buying expensive tickets for it. But one day, me and my girlfriend saw posters of The Sound of Music at the Resorts World Manila and she asked me to watch it with her but as I was saying, practicality-wise, I will not buy tickets for an expensive play. 

Comes this rare moment, our company, Wideout Technology Services, Inc. is giving away 2 free tickets for the The Sound of Music as a prize for a contest. I know that my girlfriend want to watch it badly so I tried my luck and thank God, I won! After getting my prize that day, February 17, 2012, I invited my girlfriend to have a dinner at Resorts World not knowing that I have a big surprise for her, I placed our tickets at table and I can't explain the happiness on her face. It's really priceless.

The Newport Performing Arts Theater was the venue for the play. The state-of-the art features of the theater like its huge digital screen at the backdrop added great effects to the play.

As the play started, I was really mesmerized by the voice of the sisters on the intro, they're really good. What got my attention most is the Philharmonic Orchestra playing at the background of each songs. I wish I have them at my home to play for me before I sleep. 

Maria Rainer was played by Ms. Joanna Ampil. She's really pretty with a very nice voice. She played the role very well while Mr. Audie Gemora played the role of Captain Georg von Trapp. 

Overall, we had a great time watching our first musical play and I'm sure that this is not the last. If you want to watch the Sound of Music at Resorts World Manila, it's extended until May 27, 2012.
