Pippi Longstocking, one of Nordic families’ favourite characters, has finally been turned into a ballet. Pär Isberg’s choreography is a journey to author Astrid Lindgren’s world, a small town where the world’s strongest girl gets into mischief with her friends Tommy and Annika, her pet monkey Mr Nielsson and her horse Little Old Man.

The music of the ballet has been composed by Stefan Nilsson and Georg Riedel. Riedel had already garnered fame as a Pippi composer, as he took over the famous television series and films in 1968 after the demise of Jan Johansson. He also composed music for the children’s television productions of Emil of Lönneberga and The Children of Noisy Village. The ballet includes several excerpts of popular tunes from the Pippi television series.

Recommended for children over the age of 5.
