Pride. Greed. Lust. Envy. Gluttony. Wrath. Sloth. Vile attributes that eat away at a person, destroy everything that's good and obliterate the light.

Director David Radok and his team have created a single coherent production from two seemingly disparate works: Weill’s 1930s piece Die sieben Todsünden (The Seven Deadly Sins), with influences from jazz and cabaret, and Puccini’s uproarious comedy Gianni Schicchi (with the world’s most famous aria: O mio babbino caro). The monumentally sinful stage design combines the two works into a single taleof excess, disdain, moral decay and sin.

The central figure in The Seven Deadly Sins is Anna, who is unsuccessfully trying to support her family without committing any of the deadly sins. She is interpreted by singer and Guldbagge Award winner Edda Magnason.

Åke Zetterström interprets the title role in Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi, in which a greedy family hide the corpse of a rich nobleman in order to amend his will and inherit his riches.

The conductor is Antony Hermus, previously hailed by Göteborgs-Posten for the "fantastic precision" of his Macbeth in Gothenburg.
