Tickets are now on sale for the autumn programme. PREMIERE 9 SEPTEMBER 2006, last performance 24 February 2007. Once a year a big group of cats meet at a deserted fairground. In the course of a single intense night of bragging, partying, singing and dancing, they compete for the right to one more life. Cats, as we all know, have nine lives to work their way through. In the musical, Cats, you spend the whole night with them. From the time the cats first meet right through until dawn when Profeticus, the oldest and wisest of them, decides the winner. Andrew Lloyd Webber’’s story of these self-willed city cats had its premiere in London in 1981. The production, which is based on T.S. Eliot’s collection of poems, Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, was an overnight success. It played in the West End for two decades, has been translated into 10 languages and has been staged in 24 countries. The Goteborg Opera version of Cats has a lot of surprises. Firstly, the performance is in Swedish (translation by Ingela Pling Forsman); secondly, there is a completely new set design and, lastly, you will find the choreography a little different from the original. But there remains everything that has caused audiences to love this musical for the last 25 years – a host of spectacular dance numbers and all of the classic melodies.
