Life Ball, Eröffnungsshow 2018
An Homage to The Sound of Music
As an exuberant and entertaining means of conveying its crucial message, Life Ball has established itself as a festival of life. It represents a multicultural, inclusive Austria that engages an increasingly international audience. Life Ball, as is the case with The Sound of Music (1965), represents Austrian values and traditions yet still touches a broad international impact.
Therefore, deliberately referencing Austria, the touching story of the von Trapp family will be the anniversary’s leitmotif. The Sound of Music is considered one of the most successful musical films ever released. In the movie, Austria is seen through a joyful Hollywood lens. It touches millions around the world with its famous melodies.
