In 2021, Agnetha, Frida, Björn and Benny, the members of the Swedish group ABBA, returned to music 40 years after their separation as a band. But none of them are on stage: their avatars have arrived.
Even so, the concerts that were held had full ticket sales, because during the last 50 years, this group, made up of two ex-partners today, gave pop a new way of singing and writing songs. Many criticized them and many, too, acclaimed them.
After their separation came the musical ‘Mamma Mia!’, which premiered in London in the 80s, becoming a musical theater classic.
And since May 6, Misi Producciones and the Universidad del Rosario present this show, Colombian style, at the Colsubsidio Theater, in an agreement with Music Theater International (MTI).

The story tells that Sophie (Juanita Roldán) wants to know who her father is and talks to Donna, her mother (Juliana Reyes). The three men are Sam (Juan Mondragón), Harry (Erwin Barrera) and Bill (Calo Mesa).
The search for the father turns into a party joined by the best friends of the family, Rosie (Yaneth Waldman) and Tanya (Juliana Cuevas).
In the background and to call nostalgia, ABBA classics.
