This is a concert version of the epic Swedish musical, first presented at Carnegie Hall, New York.
Kristina, by the former ABBA stars and writers of Chess, tells the story of one woman and her family’s struggle in Sweden and their subsequent emigration to America in search of a better life.
The Swedish-language musical premiered in Sweden in 1995, with Swedish musical theatre star Helen Sjoholm in the title role. Sjoholm returns to the role for this UK premiere of Kristina, with English lyrics by Les Misérables lyricist Herbert Kretzmer.
This concert version co-stars British classical recording artist Russell Watson.
