Sweden's biggest musical show

One of Sweden's most popular musical shows and one of the obvious highlights of the year for all musical lovers! Here, great voices and great emotions come together in a string of the most beloved hits from the world's greatest musicals - all performed by some of our absolute best and most merited musical artists.

The show, which has been described by the press as "the Diggiloo of musicals", is once again embarking on an extensive tour of Sweden this fall and, as in previous seasons, the audience is offered a completely new world-class ensemble and updated music from iconic musicals such as "The Phantom of the Opera", "Evita", Kristina from Duvemåla", "West Side Story", "Chess", "Cats", "Les Misérables" and many more.

This year's tour features John Martin Bengtsson, Emmi Christensson*, Martin Redhe Nord, Linda Pritchard, Viktoria Tocca* and Malena Tuvung. The orchestra is led as usual by conductor Carina E. Nilsson. * Emmi Christensson and Viktoria Tocca alternate during this year's tour of Sweden, and at Rival it is Emmi who participates.
