(From the Austrian National Tourist Office, 2011.)

It’s one of the most popular films in cinematic history and has shaped the image of Salzburg in many countries across the globe – and still does today.” Deputy Landeshauptmann (state governor) Mag. David Brenner, who has supported the project right from the start, is just as delighted: “We have at last succeeded in bringing the musical to Salzburg for the very first time. We signed a contract with the owners of the musical rights, the ‘Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization’ in New York, which allows us to bring the musical here to Salzburg, where the story of the von Trapp family really happened.” Von Maldeghem continues: “Where else does the musical belong, if not on the stage of the Salzburg Landestheater! I’m thrilled to be able to bring this piece of Salzburg history home.”The musical “The Sound of Music” has been acclaimed by audiences across the world for decades. Ever since its Broadway premiere in 1959, the musical “The Sound of Music” by Richard Rodgers (music) and Oscar Hammerstein (libretto) has conquered the world. It enjoyed spectacular acclaim for years in the entire world – from the Broadway in New York, to London, all over Asia, Australia, Southafrica and many more countries.
