Sing along at Confidencen
Singing together has a long tradition in Sweden. The 18th century poet and songwriter Carl Michael Bellman performed on the Confidencen stage, possibly singing together with the audience. Now there is a chance to join in singing both his and other songwriters’ contribution to our Swedish song treasure. We will perhaps also discover that much of what we see as genuinely Swedish music has been borrowed in many places from other cultures and traditions.

Acis and Galatea
– a pastoral about love and loss!
When Georg Friedrich Händel wrote his opera in 1718 about the two lovers Acis and Galatea, he gave the characters and the story an abundance of great emotions and colour. The opera tells the story of the love between the mortal Acis and the sea-nymph Galatea. When the jealous Polyphemus kills Acis, Galatea transforms her lover into an immortal river spirit. With Confidencen’s intimate and magnificent space as a starting point, stage director Elisabeth Linton captures this work, which in Händel’s lifetime became one of his most beloved and performed.
