Music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus
(some songs by Stig Anderson)
The Swedish production of MAMMA MIA! opened on 12 February 2005. With 506 sold-out performances at the Cirkus Theatre in Stockholm it was seen by more than 800,000 people. In May 2007 the original Stockholm cast moved to Gothenburg on the Swedish West Coast for a further 49 performances at the Scandinavium Arena. Altogether one million people have enjoyed the Swedish version of MAMMA MIA! Niklas Strömstedt and Björn Ulvaeus wrote the Swedish lyrics and the original manuscript by Catherine Johnson was translated in consultation with Peter Dalle.
MAMMA MIA! had its world premiere in London on 6 April 1999. No other musical has been performed simultaneously in so many places around the globe as MAMMA MIA!
