Anna Vnuk är bastarden at the Gothenburg City Theatre

Anna Vnuk does not know her father. She has never done that. Quite frankly, she is an unwelcome guest in his life. After 49 years of avoidance, now is the time – she will try to make up with someone who is not there. It is an era that will go to the grave and we will say goodbye to the shame of being elected. But witnesses are needed, people to share the ceremony with.

Wicked at the Göteborg Opera

The musical Wicked tells the story of what happened in the land of Oz before Dorothy got there (in the classic film The Wizard of Oz), from the perspective of the two witches. How mismatched friends Elphaba and Galinda found each other, became the evil and the good witch respectively, and managed to defeat the tyranny of the evil wizard. It’s a story of alienation, courage and love, told with magic, imagination and great music. Several of the songs, including “Defying gravity”, have become big hits.

Now comes the chance to see it at the Göteborg Opera – a classic ballet saga about the struggle between good and evil, where love ultimately triumphs over darkness, accompanied by Tchaikovsky’s beloved music performed by the Gothenburg Opera Orchestra.

Rabbit Hole at Teater Trixter

Rabbit Hole is a drama-comedy about relationships we fight for and is about Rebecka and Joel who are having a tough time in their relationship and trying to find their way back to the love, intimacy and team they once were. The fact that Rebecka’s sister gets into a bar fight and is pregnant, that their mother constantly gives well-intentioned advice in just about everything, does not make life easier for Rebecka. Joel looks further and further outside the walls of the house in his search for someone who can confirm him.
