We honour 50 years of Sound of Music with new exclusive Scenic Enrich experience

In 2016, Scenic guests travelling on the Rhine, Main, Danube will experience one of our newest Scenic Enrich events - the ‘Best of The Sound of Music and Salzburg Show’.

Launched this year in our 2016 Hidden Wonders of Europe River Cruising program, the ‘Best of The Sound of Music and Salzburg Show’ is an exclusive production of the timeless film of the same name performed in the rolling hills of Salzburg where some of the film was shot.

On a full day trip to Salzburg, guests will enjoy a guided tour of this picture book Austrian city followed by a traditional Austrian lunch and musical performance which has been created in partnership with Salzburg Orchestra and Classic Art Vienna exclusively for Scenic.

Guests will enjoy an afternoon of Sound of Music classics, such as Edelweiss and Do Re Mi, paired with Mozart and typical folk music of the region.

The 90 minute performance features a professional cast of seven actors including a children’s choir, and a 16-strong orchestra. Impressive stage sets that fit perfectly with the well-known scenes of the film help create an authentic experience for Scenic guests.

Scenic’s Journey Designers travel to the region every year and search extensively for new product which showcases the local culture and traditions. These exclusive activities and events are handpicked for Scenic guests.


Talking about the show’s creation, Aleisha Fittler GM Product Development, commented: “The idea for this show was to create something typical from this region for Scenic guests that travel from around the world with us. The ‘Best of Sound of The Music and Salzburg Show’ offers a varied program with different local instruments and professional artists in combination with the world famous musical pieces from the film, The Sound of Music. We are excited to share the final product with our guests next March. By then the team would have spent two years working on the show – from concept development, castings, rehearsals and set up.”

Guests travelling on our 15 Day Jewels of Europe river cruise will enjoy the ‘Best of The Sound of Music and Salzburg Show’ as one of the four Scenic Enrich events throughout the cruise.
