A Christmas Tale

A heart-warming Christmas show for the whole family. Performed in Swedish.

We all love Christmas, don’t we? Well, no. Not everybody. One grumpy old aunt in particular, who we meet in this year’s major Christmas show. She genuinely hates Christmas. Bah, humbug! How can we share the spirit of Christmas with this miserable old miser? We’ll start with ghosts, comedy, generosity, warmth and lots of music … Who could resist?

Our new Christmas musical is based on Charles Dicken’s classic novella A Christmas Carol. In our version, we mix comedy, unforgettable characters and fantastic music – musical, opera, pop, rap and classic Christmas carols. You’ll even meet Elvis! 

The soloists, including the song-writing talents of musical artists Tobias Ahlsell, David Lundqvist and Anders Wängdahl, team with the Göteborg Opera Orchestra, Göteborg Opera Chorus and Children’s Choir to spread joy and Christmas cheer.

Children’s menu (up to 12 years old)

Choose between:

  • Meatballs & mashed potato, or
  • Crumbed and fried plaice, served with remoulade sauce
