» More Details On “The Sound Of Music”

We’re finding out more about the live TV production of “The Sound Of Music” that Carrie Underwood is starring in this December.

Last week, a representative from NBC told the New York Daily News the broadcast will originate from a sound stage in Bethpage Long Island. “There is no live audience and no proscenium, as in a conventional theater,” they said. “Instead, the show will look like a film with all the action played live and in sequence.”

There will be several sets build on the stage, and the actors will be shot with multiple cameras. “All of the singing will be live, and the music — using a 40-piece orchestra — will be pre-recorded in order to ensure the best mix of the instruments.” The full cast will include 61 actors, including Carrie.

The Sound Of Music will be on NBC December 5.
