A DAZZLING EXTRAVAGANZA SET IN 18TH CENTURY STOCKHOLM
Welcome to a dazzling 360-degree extravaganza where a group of French travelling actors is in charge of the entertainment. Anything can happen, because the French really know how to turn life in to an adventure! Our guide is a playful Tessin, the great palace architect and lover of the arts, who dazzles us with his illusions.
Step into a world charged with passion and enthusiasm. Sit down in the middle of the city and let the façades come alive. What is hidden behind the walls? The production team, led by Karin Modigh, has created a declaration of love for French Baroque theatre. There will be music, dance, singing, commedia dell’arte and stage sets that harmonize in one moment and changes dramatically the next.
Family performance. Suitable for children between ages 6 and 12. Please note that all seats are located on the floor (cushions provided).
