I am German and I LOVE the Sound of Music.

Classical and more old-fashioned musicals are not very popular in Germany and Austria. German language (and mostly Austrian) musicals like "Tanz der Vampire" or "Elisabeth" and newer musicals like "Wicked" or "Hairspray" or Disney musicals are far more popular here. Or maybe some Sondheim, but mostly just "Sweeney Tood", not his other shows. Musicals by Rodgers & Hammerstein, Benstein, Porter or Gershwin are just not the German/Austrian taste and consiered cheesy. Sadly :/
