Mary Poppins

Musical. The seasons’s big musical is Mary Poppins. The unconventional governess from the children’s books, which were made into a film and then a musical, now flies into the Göteborg Opera with her magic umbrella. We learn for the first time on a Swedish stage that everything can be supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

The task of shaping this new family production has fallen on Stina Ancker, who earlier at GöteborgsOpera had such a great success with The Abduction from the Seraglio. As she has often done before she will beworking together with the translator, Magnus Lindman. The musical director is Björn Dobbelaere, who was also responsible for our earlier musicals, Miss Saigon and Cats.

Linda Olsson is given her first big musical role as Mary Poppins and Magnus Borén plays her dancing friend, Bert.
