Tinsel and Tumult

A Christmas musical for the whole family.

Performed in Swedish, with surtitles in both Swedish and English.

One of the final rehearsals is underway on the opera house’s main stage for this year’s sparkling Christmas show. Expectations are high. The director rushes around while the prima donna and Santa Claus compete for the limelight. But something goes wrong and the premiere’s success is suddenly jeopardised. What magic powers are at work backstage? Can the plucky ensemble save the Christmas show before it’s too late?

Tinsel and Tumult is a new family musical. Accompanied by new arrangements of classic Christmas tunes, a musical adventure unfolds with joy and seriousness in equal measures.

The Göteborg Opera’s soloists, Chorus, Children’s Chorus and Orchestra throng the stage.
