‘Abba Voyage’ recently opened to the public in London.The concert sees Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid perform digitally with a 10-piece band during a residency that is due to run until May 2023, in a purpose-built arena based in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. On this special edition of ‘The Monocle Weekly’, Georgina Godwin meets the world-class creative team: lead producer Svana Gisla, known for her work with David Bowie and Beyoncé, and producer Ludvig Andersson, who worked on ‘Mamma Mia!’. The pair tell us the background to the show, give us more information on the custom-designed venue, reveal a little of the technological wizardry behind the performance and explain how the magic of Abba is celebrated every night.
