The Sound of Music Musical in the Landestheater of Salzburg | © Christina Canaval

Musical - The Sound of Music

In 2011, the stage musical “The Sound of Music” celebrated its premiere at the Salzburger Landestheater. Since it was filmed back in 1965, the story of the Trapp family has become world famous.

A musical based on the life of the famous Trapp family

The story tells of the young novice nun Maria. Between the two World Wars, she came into the Trapp household as a nanny to the children. There, she fell in love with widower Georg von Trapp and married him. Their family choir made them famous, but finally they were forced to flee to the United States.

"The Sound of Music" comes home to Salzburg

Every year, many tourists walk in the footsteps of Maria von Trapp and visit original shooting locations from the movie, where Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer sang, danced and acted. For the longest time, “The Sound of Music” and the cult which surrounds it were practically unknown in Austria and Salzburg. But through the musical, a piece of Salzburg has now returned to its roots.

Performance lasts about 3 hours / one intermission
