Memories you never forget

For more than half a century, millions of people around the world have been following the bitter sweet film story of the von Trapp family in the worldwide cinema hit "The Sound of Music". The film, starring Julie Andrews, was filmed in 1965 only a few kilometres as the crow flies from Hallstatt in Fuschl, Lake Wolfgang and Salzburg. Now it's time to open a new musical chapter: "The Sound of Hallstatt"

More about the artists

For all those who would like to know more about the artists of the "Sound of Hallstatt" this evening, we have put together some information about the singers and orchestra below.

Adele Neuhauser

Adele Neuhauser is a child of two worlds. When her Greek father and her Austrian mother split up, the only 9-year-old Adele decides to live with her father - a decision that triggers feelings of guilt and disunity. She will do six suicide attempts on herself and her environment. But she survives this difficult time and moves on.

Adele learns the brisk walk from her grandparents, both artists. Soon she uses him as an actress on stage. He becomes her trademark, as well as her unusual dark voice. Ever since she plays the vulnerable and injured figure of Bibi Fellner in the hearts of millions of people in the TV Series "Tatort", she loves this likeable, unconventional woman in the entire German-speaking world. Adele Neuhauser's life is a story full of happiness, curiosity and courage, but also full of hard decisions and times of grief.

She looks back with great candor - and with an overwhelming desire for new beginnings, she looks ahead: an attitude that can give us all the courage.
