ABBA Musical acts as a crowd puller
The fact that “Mamma Mia” was used on the stage of Lake Mörbisch this year was quickly well received by the audience. All tickets sold out at the beginning of May – more tickets sold out for “Mamma Mia” in Mörbisch. The musical “Mamma Mia” features 22 songs by the legendary Swedish band ABBA.
Freudensprung-Schöll (ORF) in “Mamma Mia”
Silvia Freudensprung-Schöll (ORF) talks about, among other things, the musical “Mamma Mia”, which takes place on Thursdays at the Mörbisch Lake Stage. In addition, I reported whether the nerves at the site are now planned and what is the weather forecast for Thursday.
The lake phase shifts to Greece until August 19th. On 3,600 square meters there are houses, a beach, a tavern, a bar and a harbour. Use the typical architecture and white and blue colors of Santorini. Mamma Mia is directed by Andreas Gergen. In 2016, he has already staged the operetta “Viktoria and her Hussar” in Mörbisch. So Gergen is very familiar with the scale of the theatre. Rehearsals began in early June.
