KISS ME KATE!

KISS ME KATE!

Flaring tempers and ice-cold nerves in a Total Musical Explosion featuring False Love and Rough Battles.

Fred hates Lilly with all his heart. And Lilly hates Fred with equal passion. But on stage they have to make believe that they are in love. All because they have put everything they own into a bold venture; the making of a musical based on Shakespear's "The Taming of the Shrew".

Come backstage, watch rehearsals go awry, with distraught composers, missing stage sets, and insistent gangsters. In just a few hours the audience will turn up for the big opening night. Will the curtain rise on time?

Brush up your Shakespeare, I hate men, Wunderbarand many other classical musical numbers are performed by the Göteborg Opera Orchestra in their most jazzy big band mood!

Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter, Dialogue by Bella and Sam Spewach.
Performed in Swedish with a new translation by Ulricha Johnson.
