The Göteborg Opera Orchestra celebrates the 50th anniversary of The Summer of Love with a visually and musically colourful concert!
In the mid-60s, the pop and rock scene had exploded in the US and the UK. New influences and ideas led to music that broke out in psychedelic bloom in 1967. Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix and David Bowie made their debut. Yet it was The Beatles, who with the concept album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, set a new direction for pop music.
Featuring rock singer Ebbot Lundberg, indie musician Annie Angel, the band Tonbruket and Oskar Nilsson, best known to musical fans as playing the role of Robert in the popular musical Kristina från Duvemåla.
The concert will also feature musical artists from this season’s musical Hair: Tobias Ahlsell, David Lundqvist, Anders Wängdahl, Kitty Chan and Klara Nilsson.
Hans Ek will conduct the Göteborg Opera Orchestra.
