The Phantom of the Opera today!
Tonight I'm going to see “The Phantom of the Opera” at Cirkus!
I'm going to see it with my friend Johanna and it starts at 7:30 pm.
I've never seen a musical live before so I'm excited that “The Phantom of the Opera” will be the first musical I get to see since it's one of the most successful musicals in the world! But the biggest reason why I wanted to see it is because one of my favorite artists Peter Jöback is playing the title role as “The Phantom”.
Peter played the same role in “The Phantom of the Opera” in London 2012 and New York 2013 and now the third time he's playing the same role in “The Phantom of the Opera” in his/our hometown Stockholm! He will probably not be a part of this musical again and definitely not in Stockholm anyway so of course I couldn't miss the chance to see him star in the big musical that “The Phantom of the Opera” is!
Tickets to Hans Zimmer Live in Stockholm!
I just booked my tickets to Hans Zimmer Live in Stockholm on May 18, 2017!
I'm going to the concert with my friend Christopher.
Everyone who loves movies and their soundtracks probably know of Hans Zimmer. If you don't know of him, he's probably made the soundtrack to at least one movie that you love.
Since he's a composer and not a singer, I had no idea that he did concerts. I just stumbled upon a Facebook post about Hans Zimmer Live a few weeks ago and immediately knew that I wanted to go. As far as I know he doesn't do concerts regularly anywhere and this is the first time he will perform in Scandinavia so I know that this will be a memorable and once-in-a-lifetime experience and I already look forward to it!
“In 2017 Hans Zimmer will be performing in Scandinavia for the first time. ‘Hans Zimmer Live On Tour’ comes to Ericsson Globe, Stockholm on May 18.
Hans, whose music can currently be heard in BBC 1’s ‘Planet Earth II’ and the Netflix phenomenon ‘The Crown’ will be joined onstage by his 15 piece studio band, along with an orchestra and choir bringing the total number of musicians on stage to over 60.
The ‘Hans Zimmer Live On Tour’ concerts will be in two parts: the first being some of Zimmer’s classic movie scores including Gladiator, The Lion King and Pirates of the Caribbean and more and the second featuring re-imagined versions of some classic scores such as The Dark Knight Trilogy and Inception with special guests from the rock and pop world.”
Ballet Gala - The best of Tjaikovski.
Tonight I'm going to see a ballet for the first time in my life!
This ballet is called “Balettgala - Det bästa av Tjaikovski” (“Ballet gala - The best of Tjaikovski”) and it's a unique ballet performance that restores the Russian classical ballet tradition in the best way. This ballet only plays tonight on October 10, October 11 and October 12 at Intiman in Stockholm.
“The Ballet Gala includes a cavalcade of the most complicated and in its beauty unforgettable ballet performances combined with a concert where the audience gets enchanted by Tjaikovski's magical music. The implementation is like a magical ride surrounded by an ever-conquering power of love.
The program is dynamic and changes between solos and parts with a large number of dancers on scene simultaneously. A variety of magnificent costumes and scenography contribute to unforgettable experiences.
The artists honor the Bolshoi Theatre ballet traditions and carry the show entirely according to the original productions and the great Petipa's choreography, which will not leave anyone unaffected in the auditorium.
The Moscow Ballet consists of young highly creative and talented dancers with strong personalities. They have won several prestigious international competitions and has had success in many leading theaters around the world, but primarily on the world-famous Bolshoi Theatre. They also had a highly acclaimed tour recently in Italy, Switzerland, Spain, USA, Mexico and New Zealand.
Now it is Sweden's turn to enjoy the magic and elegance of this first-class ballet with the best dance numbers from “Swan Lake”, “Nutcracker” and “Sleeping Beauty” accompanied by the great and timeless music of Peter Tjaikovski.”
(I translated this from Intiman.)
As you can read above, this is a real Russian ballet with music from Peter Tjaikovski so it sounds very promising! I hope that it will live up to my expectations and that I will like it, but no matter what it will be very interesting to get to see a ballet for the first time in my life and it will be something that I can say that I've actually seen and experienced.
160726 - Beyoncé @ Friends Arena.
Beyonce @ Friends Arena, Stockholm, Sweden.
Beyoncé @ Friends Arena today!
I'm going to the concert with my Brother and tonight will be the second time I get to see Beyoncé live! I still remember her concert at Ericsson Globe in 2007 as one of the best concerts I've ever been to (& I've been to quite many concerts) so I have no doubt that tonight's concert will be good!
The concert will start at 7 pm with the two opening acts Chloe X Halle and Ingrid.
I'll try to take a lot of photos at the concert tonight and you can expect to see them in a blog-post within a few days.
Katy Perry - Rise.
Beyoncé - Sorry.
Ariana Grande - Into You.
Ariana Grande - Be Alright (Live on SNL).
Ariana Grande - Dangerous Woman.
Nicky Byrne - Sunlight.
Nicky Byrne will represent Ireland with the song “Sunlight” in the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 here in Stockholm, Sweden.
Westlife are my biggest childhood idols and I'll always support them even though they're not a band anymore. All of them have their own solo music careers and now finally Nicky have gone solo as well! Nicky have always been my favorite in Westlife, even though I obviously like all of them and the band as a whole, so this is very exciting! He have already been offered a album deal with Universal Music Ireland so I hope this means he'll begin his solo music career for real; make more music and go on tour etc. ♥

I have my “The Phantom of the Opera” tickets!
I'm going to see “The Phantom of the Opera” on December 1, 2016 with my friend Johanna.
I heard last year that Peter Jöback would star in “The Phantom of the Opera” again. He have been celebrated for his role both in Londons West End and on Broadway in New York. So I obviously wanted to see my love Peter Jöback in this musical! I signed up that I wanted to get notified as soon as the tickets were available so I actually got to order the tickets some weeks before they were even officially released and today they arrived at my home. Everyone else will simply have to wait until November before they can get their tickets.
The musical will take place in the beautiful and majestic L'Opéra Garnier in Paris. It's the classic story about the passionate lovestory between the Phantom and the ballerina Christine Daaé. “The Phantom of the Opera” played on Oscarsteatern between 1989-1995 and became one of our country's biggest musical successes. Finally it returns to Sweden and plays on Cirkus in Stockholm only in a limited time.
