Yes, the original Sound of Music film, with Julie Andrews spinning through a flower-strewn meadow, was set in the Alps. But the stunning scenery recalls Western North Carolina — a good reason to launch the production here in Asheville. Plus, pretty much everyone knows pretty much every word, from the "whiskers on kittens" of “My Favorite Things” to "a doe, a deer, a female deer" in “Do-Re-Mi.” Asheville Lyric Opera performs the Rodgers and Hammerstein Broadway musical, Friday-Sunday, April 20-22 at Diana Wortham Theatre. 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 3 p.m. on Sunday. $30, $42 and $53. http://www.ashevillelyric.org.
