Julie Elizabeth Andrews, is an English film and stage actress, singer, author, theatre director and dancer returns to Salzburg 50 Years After The Sound of Music.
she and husband Blake Edwards had turned their landmark 1982 gender-bending film “Victor/Victoria” into a Broadway musical, and then into a TV movie. after many sopranos decide they have to pack her voice in, through 1997 she was just as active as ever but Julie Andrews’s legendary four-octave voice wasn’t what it
once had been because she was over 60 at that time and the voice that gave the world “Do-Re-Mi” wasn’t do-re-mi-ing as it should.
Andrews known that she had a non-cancerous nodules in her throat which can sometimes be treated without surgery, that was after a trip to a doctor. She checked into Mt. Sinai Hospital to go
under the knife.
Andrews said at the time that Singing has been a cherished a gift, and her inability to sing has been a devastating blow.
She is 79 years old and recovered gracefully from her alleged defeat at the hands of surgeons. she now reigns supreme over the “Sound of Music” nostalgia industry — putting in an appearance at the Oscars to applaud Lady Gaga’s medley of music from the show, and granting an interview to Diane Sawyer Wednesday night during ABC’s 50th anniversary celebration that had Twitter blubbering.
