Whiting Auditorium

Direct from Sweden The Music of ABBA

8:00 PM
Location:  Whiting Auditorium

FIM presents

Direct from Sweden: The Music of ABBA captures the incomparable sound and look of Sweden’s greatest musical export with meticulous attention to costumes, make-up, musical arrangements, movements and singing. Nothing is overlooked or left to chance. The use of many of the same methods as ABBA – including standout solos, musical numbers and a complete live band with backup singers – ensures an extra dimension unheard of in most similar productions.

Dance, sing along and enjoy the familiar hits such as “Dancing Queen,” “Chiquitita,” “Mamma Mia,” “Fernando,” “Take a Chance,” “Money Money Money,” and many more.

With more than 400 million records sold, ABBA is Sweden’s biggest musical phenomenon ever!  When the Musical Mamma Mia hit the American Stages in 2000 it became an instant classic, and the ABBA tribute was born.

ABBA started in 1971 and ended as a group in 1982, and in just that 10 years, ABBA created enough great music that they are thought by many to be the greatest pop group of all time, besides Elvis and The Beatles. Even today, more than 50 years since they started, their music continues to be passed on from generation to generation and is loved by the entire world.

Direct from Sweden: The Music of ABBA will deliver the closest ABBA experience you’ll ever get with some of Sweden’s most experienced and talented singers and musicians playing 100% live. The audience will be on their feet the entire show!
