The Sound of Music
The Trapp family is inseparably linked with the baroque city of Salzburg -- but many facts aren't widely known.
Did you know that the famed family lost its fortune in 1933 and Maria von Trapp dismissed the servants, moved the family into the servants' quarters and rented out their former home? One of her guests, upon hearing her children sing, suggested they enter a folk music contest. It's here that the familiar story began, leading to one of the most successful musicals ever. "The Sound of Music" gave us ”Edelweiss,” ”Do-Re-Mi” and ”My Favorite Things,” classics still passed from generation to generation.
Today, the musical returns to its Salzburg origins, at the stately Salzburger Landestheater. Don't just see the show -- book a "Ticket & Backstage" package for a behind-the-curtains tour to meet the actors, enjoy sparkling wine and receive a one-of-a-kind gift.
