Preview from the Norrlandsoperan peformance Blanche & Marie:

Blanche and Marie is a newly written opera by Mats Larsson Gothe and Maria Sundqvist that will premiere at NorrlandsOperan October 10. Based on Per Olov Enquist’s novel The Story of Blanche and Marie, the opera deals with possible and impossible love.

Four striking characters form the centrepiece of the opera, which takes place in Paris at the turn of the 20th century. The protagonists are two-time Nobel Prize winner Marie Curie and Blanche Wittman, once the world’s most famous mental patient.

Mullin Mallin and Svensk Peppar play music spanning from the Balkans to Swedish Lappland. Sometimes wild and crazy, and occassionally with  vilt och galet, ibland med wistful melancholy. They like to say they play music that they like! Music for love, pain and incredible joy!

Nina Ramsby is one of Sweden's popular artists right now. With an extraordinary presence and a never-ending curiosity, this multi-instrumentalist, sing-songwriter and producer has been involved in numerous genres in ten high-profile groups and projects including: the hard rocking Salt, the melancholy pop orchestra Grand Tone Music, the electronica band Baxter, collaboration with Nashville-based Brent Hunter in The World, and creative jazz in the Nina Ramsby Ludvig Berghe Trio.

Together with Martin Hederos (The Soundtrack of Our Lives and Hederos & Hellberg), Nina has also released the critically acclaimed albums "Visorna" (2004) and "Jazz" (2006) . On "Visorna" they interpret in their responsive ways of songs by Cornelis, Fred Åkerström, Eva Dahlgren and Barbro Horberg. Nina wrote Swedish lyrics on "Jazz" to songs by Nina Simone, Stina Nordenstam, Sade and Billie Holiday. The lyrics are about gender identity confusion, hate, courage, desire, God, consolation and forgiveness.

Since the spring of 2008, Nina has been out on the road and has performed in a more minimalist style. She plays alone with vocals and guitar with tremendous presence with interpretations of Bellman, Cornelis and Fred Å. Songs of sorrow, oppression, struggle, uprising and the art of seduction.

The group ÁRA takes a prominent place between Sami tradition and visionary energy. Their first album titled “O” created new ways for yoik as an art form, a musical meeting that bridged cultural boundaries. With the new album Vuoste virdái (“Against the Stream”) Ára honors the people standing up for their origin, those who are proud of their tradition and history.
