Malmo Opera's production of Verdi's opera masterpiece, RIGLETTO is premiering Saturday next week in Malmo (March 24th). The show is known for being one of the most popular operas and is based upon an earlier play by the famous French author Victor Hugo called 'Le roi s'amuse' (The King Amuses Himself). Hugo has a history of writing plays and novels that take on the establishment. Another obvious, similarly-themed, tale is Hugo's classic 'Les Miserables.'BWW Review: Swedish Production of THE BOOK OF MORMON at Chinateatern, Stockholm. November 26, 2017
Author: Isa Ponturo. Trey Parker and Matt Stone's critically-acclaimed and smash hit satire of Mormon missionaries was one of the biggest hypes of 2011. It is one of those mainstream shows that' breaks the fourth wall' with non-thespians (Think Hamilton) and still is still one of the most popular shows in the theatre community. Sweden was the first non english speaking country to make a production of this show and it opened to raving reviews earlier this year.BWW Interview: Peter Jöback of the Swedish Production of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA April 6, 2017

Andrew Lloyd Webber's iconic 'THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA' is one of the most successful pieces of theatre and entertainment of all time and continues to captivate audiences all over the world.
The first Swedish production in the late 80's was a huge success so this revival was very anticipated by the old and the new generations of Swedish theatre-goers. I heard someone in the audience say that it was like visiting an old friend after almost 30 years.Photo Coverage: THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA Stockholm at Cirkus September 12, 2016
