NBC’s new “The Sound of Music” is not trying to remake the classic movie.
The televised version of the stage production will feature Carrie Underwood as Maria. A part immortalized on film by Julie Andrews. The original Broadway musical starred Mary Martin, along with Theodore Bikel as Captain von Trapp.
NBC will broadcast the production live from a hangar in Queens, New York on one night, Thursday, December 5 at 8 p.m. EST.
Agnieszka Holland Lecture and Film
The Embassy of the Republic of Poland and The National Gallery of Art will present an illustrated lecture by film director Agnieszka Holland followed by a screening of her latest miniseries Burning Bush.
Holland discusses her latest narrative feature In Darkness (2011) and the miniseries Burning Bush (2013). Both works are based on historic events — the struggle to survive in Nazi-occupied Poland and the revolutionary reaction to the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1969, respectively — and illustrate with empathy the humanitarian and existential plight of various individuals.
Born in 1948 in Warsaw, Holland is one of Poland’s most internationally acclaimed film directors and screenwriters.
Sunday – December 1, 2:00- 3:00 pm Lecture / 3:30 pm Film screening; Admission Free. National Gallery of Art – East Building Concourse Auditorium (National Mall between 3rd and 4th Streets along Constitution Avenue NW), Washington, DC.
