“Swedish Style”: Transported Back To the 80s

Monday was like a wondrous flashback to the early 1980s, as we shot the music video for the upcoming Young Pals Music release; full length theatrical rock musical “Swedish Style,” based on the break-up of music group Opus 10, a quartet in the spirit of ABBA. 15+ actors, musicians and crew members joined us at an off-Broadway theatre in the heart of Times Square to film a promotional video for the production—complete with period costumes.

“Swedish Style: The Musical” is inspired by the captivating tale of the break-up of Swedish super group ABBA—a lesser-known but all-important chapter in the quartet’s fabled history. The show is written by Ayhan Sahin and Selcen Pamuk Phelps. The dramatized theatrical production is set in the early 1980s and rapt with love, loss, friendship, heartbreak and the penance of ultimate artistic immortality.

The video vignette filmed on December 12 by Christopher Holmes will provide a compelling sketch of the new production and its soundtrack recording, detailing elements of the script, choreography, set and costumes.

Young Pals Music will release the 14-song double-disc cast soundtrack for “Swedish Style” in January 2012.
