Stage & Movie

WEST SIDE STORY
Concert version, the Concert Hall, Stockholm 1990

I was surprised when I got a call from the Concert Hall in Stockholm asking me if I wanted to sing and play the part of Tony in their concert version of the musical of musicals West Side Story. I had just ended second from last in the Swedish Eurovision Song Contest and the media had done a good job killing me off and I didn’t really think that I would get to take my career any further. This was the first time I got to sing with a symphony orchestra of measures and that was great. I remember that Elisabeth Berg played the part of Maria and that Sofia Källgren was also on stage.
