A Christmas Carol

A heart-warming Christmas show for the whole family. Performed in Swedish.


Everyone loves Christmas, don’t they? Not everybody. And one grumpy old lady in particular, who we meet in this year’s major Christmas show. She genuinely hates Christmas. ”Bah, humbug!” How can we share some Christmas spirit to this miserable old miser? We’ll start with ghosts, comedy, generosity, warmth and lots of music … Who could resist?

Our new Christmas musical is based on Charles Dickens’ classic, A Christmas Carol. In our version, we mix comedy, unforgettable characters and fantastic music – musical, opera, pop, rap and classic Christmas carols.

The soloists, including the song-writing talents of musical artists Tobias Ahlsell, David Lundqvist and Anders Wängdahl, team with the Göteborg Opera Orchestra, Göteborg Opera Chorus and Children’s Choir to spread joy and Christmas cheer.
