A concert version of Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus' musical Kristina will be performed at Carnegie Hall featuring a 50 piece symphony orchestra, conducted by Paul Gemignani. Lars Rudolfsson will direct a 32 member company.
This will be the first presentation in English with lyrics by Björn Ulvaeus and Herbert Kretzmer.
Originally titled Kristina från Duvemåla, the musical premiered at the Malmo Music Theatre in Sweden in 1995 to great acclaim from critics and audiences alike. The musical ran for almost four years, winning four Guldmasken Theatre Awards (Sweden's Tony!) and was seen by more people than any other musical in Swedish history.
