If you don’t love timeless classic musical numbers stuck in your head, then stop reading right now because you’re about to experience a stampede.
On Sunday evening, luxury cruise and tour operator Scenic took one very lucky group of travel agents and media to see The Sound of Music live at Sydney’s Capitol Theatre.
The London Palladium stage production of The Sound of Music honours the fiftieth anniversary of the classic film.
Scenic’s support of the production comes ahead of the launch of a new experience for cruise guests travelling on the Rhine, Main and Danube in 2016.
Guests will enjoy a day trip to Salzburg including a guided tour followed by a traditional Austrian lunch and musical showcase created in partnership with Salzburg Orchestra and Classic Art Vienna.
The 90-minute performance creates an authentic experience with stage sets reminiscent of the film. The professional cast of seven actors including a children’s choir and a 16-strong orchestra will perform a medley of classics from the film intertwined with Mozart and regional folk music.
Scenic general manager of sales and marketing Michelle Black said, “It has been two years in the making so we are really excited to share the final product with our guests in March.”
