Following on from Kristina från Duvemåla‘s hugely successful run at Helsinki’s Svenska Teatern, the show will be performed as a concert version again this September at the Kinnarps Arena in Jönköping.
In the role of ‘Kristina’ will be Sanna Neilsen. Christer Nerfont who once played ‘Robert’ in the Stockholm Cirkus production will play ‘Karl Oskar’ and Marianne Morck will return to the role she helped originate ‘Fina-Kajsa’. ‘Robert’ is due to be played by Bruno Mitsogiannis, whilst Åsa Fång will play ‘Ulrika’.
Anders Eljas will conduct the Jönköpings Sinfonietta and a large choir comprised of singers from around Sweden.
Concert versions of Kristina från Duvemåla in Swedish have previously been performed in Sweden, of course, and also Minnesota. English language concerts have been performed in London’s Royal Albert Hall and Carnegie Hall in New York – a recording from the latter venue was issued on CD.
Tickets for the Jönköping concert which takes place on Saturday 7 September, priced from SEK 350 to 650 are on sale from 0900 on 7 May and available from Julius Biljettservice.
