There are sections on the show’s ‘History’, ‘Company’ (with further cast details beyond Helen Sjöholm and Russell Watson still to be announced), ‘Sights & Sounds’ (with slideshow, audio and video), ‘Press’ and ‘Contact Us’.
Benny and Björn’s letter:
In author Vilhelm Moberg’s story about Kristina and Karl Oskar, they emigrate to America and live half their lives in their adopted country. Wouldn’t it be strange then, never to present the musical about them to an American audience? We think we can hear your answer to that question.
So now the time has come; on the 23rd and 24th of September there will be two concerts at Carnegie Hall in New York. It is in musical and lyrical form we choose to introduce Kristina there, the complete theatrical production hopefully to follow later.
You can read more about the concert on this website, but let us say this: it’s pure joy to present this event!
See you there!
Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus
As the letter appears on the website:
Letter from Benny and Björn introduces Kristina
- The copyright for the site is ‘Ki Chi Saga 2009’
- The way the letter from B&B starts on the homepage is different to that of the actual letter itself, referring as it does to Kristina and Karl Oskar both living and dying in America. Reference to them dying is removed on the clickthrough version.
- Click on The Company and there is a profile of Helen. Within it is a link to the full version of Story Of A Heart – thanks to ‘J_ase’.
