Concert. Family concert with music from Astrid Lindgren's fantastic stories
Astrid Lindgren was not just a writer of fantastic stories; she also wrote the lyrics to all the songs in her plays and films. The musical scores for these songs were composed by some of Sweden's most eminent composers, including Georg Riedel and Jan Johansson. As the grand finale of a season dedicated to children and young people, The Göteborg Opera invites the whole family to an enjoyable concert based on music by Astrid Lindgren . In Tjolahopp, tjolahej! we get to hear music from Pippi Långstrump (Pippi Longstocking), Karlsson på taket (Karlsson-on-the-Roof), Ronja Rövardotter (Ronia the Robber's Daughter), Madicken, Saltkråkan (Seacrow Island) and Emil i Lönneberga (Emil of Lönneberga), among others.
Mia Ringblom Hjertner, musical artist, director and head of the Youth department at The Göteborg Opera, has selected both famous songs and songs rarely performed. Guest soloists perform alongside soloists from The Göteborg Opera, The Göteborg Opera Chorus, Children's Chorus and Orchestra. The night will be filled with fond memories and new discoveries for both old and young. Alexander Hanson will be conducting.
