Watch Carrie Underwood Defy Expectations in ‘The Sound of Music Live!’ First Look [VIDEO]
For those worried that Carrie Underwood would make Maria von Trapp a little too country in NBC’s upcoming ‘The Sound of Music Live!’, the first look at the production will put your minds at ease.
The trailer features Underwood singing several (perfectly executed) songs without a hint of twang, including ‘My Favorite Things’ and ‘Edelweiss,’ a gorgeous duet with ‘True Blood’ actor Stephen Moyer, who plays Captain von Trapp.
“This is a televised version of the stage production,” explains Laura Benanti, who plays Baroness Elsa Schraeder. “We’re not trying to remake the movie. Nobody can remake the movie.” With that in mind, watch the trailer above, and be sure to tune into NBC’s ‘The Sound of Music Live!’ on Dec. 5 at 8/7 central.
