The Manoel Theater will stage the tribute to ABBA this week


The future production GOLD: Celebrating 50 years of music from Sweden’s most famous pop bandproduced by Manoel Theatre, aims to pay homage to ABBA, Sweden’s most famous pop music export.

Since being crowned Europe’s favorite band with their rendition of Waterloo in the early 1970s, the band never looked back and enjoyed lasting success for over four decades. The band’s popularity has transcended time and trends, and it’s still one of the most universally beloved musical acts of all time.

GOLD is the brainchild of creative artist Antoine Farrugia and will showcase the vocal talents of six of Malta’s most eminent singers. The singers themselves will also join the dancers in the choreographies of Celaine Buhagiar. The performers will be accompanied by a live band under the direction of Melchior Busuttil.

The event will see Glen Vella, Ludwig Galea, Martina Borg, Jasmine Abela, Michela Galea and Kevin Borg sing Mom Mia, super troop and Do you want among other successes. The Swedish band’s songs have never gone out of style and their fans span generations.

“The best part of being the leader of the group for GOLD brings together the artistry of the musicians with the performances of the singers and dancers against the backdrop of the efforts of the production team,” says Busuttil.

“It was a fun challenge to infuse the classic surroundings of the Manoel Theater with a disco-pop vibe. It promises to be a real treat for ABBA fans, and I can say we have a few surprises in store. So book your tickets now and thank us for the music later!

GOLD: Celebrating 50 years of music from Sweden’s most famous pop band will take place at the Manoel Theater from February 10 to 12, with all performances starting at 8 p.m. This event follows all current COVID-19 guidelines.
