A nice performance of a classic, with some new twists--new songs, removed original songs, songs moved to different parts of the story, and a couple of altered plot points. The Julie Andrews version is just so familiar--even to me, and I had really only seen it once before watching this new version--that all of the differences seem to call attention to themselves, but after I could adjust my brain to stop comparing constantly and just enjoy the novelty of this one, I really enjoyed it. Some really powerful singing, especially by Audra McDonald as the Mother Abbess.

Carrie Underwood did a fantastic job in this one. She did better here than her actual career, making albums! Highly recommended. Has great acting on everyone's part.

Definitely different from the Julie Andrews version. They even admit that they are "not trying to recreate the original Sound of Music." Many of the songs are cut out (like the song "Confidence" when Maria leaves the abbey), or have been placed in different scenes. There are also new songs written specifically for this adaptation (a duet sung by the Baroness and Max).

I'm not sure if Carrie Underwood was a great choice for the role of Maria. But, considering this was a live event and they had limited space to work with on the set, I think they still did a great job.
