The Sound of Mumbai

June 17 at 8pm ET / 10pm PT

The Sound of Music, with its imagery of mountains and edelweiss, may not seem like a natural fit for India's Maximum City, but the Bombay Chamber Orchestra begs to differ. Recruiting kids from the slums - home to half the city's population - the Orchestra sets out to stage a choral performance of the Rogers & Hammerstein score. In capturing the process, The Sound of Mumbai: A Musical overflows with emotion. It doesn't matter whether you've previously embraced or resisted The Sound of Music, after this rendition your association will never be the same.
