Pippi Longstocking is a captivating ballet with a vivaciouse xpression that entertains children and adults alike. The fun and affecting performance charms the audience with a combination of 1950s nostalgia, entertainment, speed and colour.
The characters on stage with the world’s strongest girl are familiar from Astrid Lindgren’s much-loved books: Tommy and Annika, Mr Nielsson, Little Old Man, and of course the world’s strongest girl. The story is easy to follow as a ballet, too. The well-known Pippi melodies featured in the score add yet another reason to smile.
