Following its hugely successful run throughout 2005, the International Tour of MAMMA MIA! will come to Riga for a 1 week run from 8th May 2007 until 13th May 2007. Over the last two years, The International Tour has already performed in Dublin, Edinburgh, South Africa, Tallinn, Lisbon, Paris, Brussels, throughout Germany, Vienna, Zurich, Belfast and has already been seen by over 1.3 million people and to follow with MAMMA MIA! will now be coming to the capital city of Latvia and will have 8 shows at “Arena Riga”.

Inspired by the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs, writer Catherine Johnson’s sunny, funny tale of family and friendship unfolds on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings 3 men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.


Commenting upon this exciting announcement, BDG Events director Inga Kadeka, said: “Attracting the World’s No.1 show is a fantastic. MAMMA MIA! is sure to be a huge hit in Riga and we are delighted that we have been selected as an upcoming port of call for the International Tour.”

With more productions playing simultaneously around the world than any other musical, MAMMA MIA! is the world’s number one show. The original London production of MAMMA MIA! opened in 1999 and there are currently 11 productions of MAMMA MIA! playing worldwide. As well as London and the International Tour, MAMMA MIA! is currently playing Broadway, Las Vegas, North American Tour, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Madrid, Stockholm, Osaka and a Russian-language production recently opened in Moscow.

Producer Judy Craymer was first inspired to create a musical using the music of ABBA to tell an original story in 1987. Since its stage premiere in 1999, MAMMA MIA! has gone on to gross over 2 billion dollars worldwide. More than 27 million people have seen the show worldwide.

With music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, MAMMA MIA! is written by Catherine Johnson and directed by Phyllida Lloyd. MAMMA MIA! has choreography by Anthony Van Laast, production design by Mark Thompson, lighting design by Howard Harrison, sound design by Andrew Bruce and Bobby Aitken, and musical supervision, additional material and arrangements by Martin Koch.

A legacy of extraordinary songs and worldwide record sales of over 360 million have ensured ABBA a lasting popularity. The group had 9 number one singles in the UK and 9 number one albums. ABBA GOLD, first released in 1992, spent 206 weeks in the album charts. It entered the charts at number one. It was re-issued in 1999, as part of 25th anniversary year celebrations marking ABBA’s Eurovision win, and went back to the top of the charts. It remains one of the biggest selling music albums of all-time. To date, only The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Cliff Richard and Madonna have been more successful than ABBA in the UK.

The International Tour is produced by Judy Craymer, Richard East and Björn Ulvaeus for Littlestar in association with Universal, Stage Entertainment and NGM.
