“‘MAMMA MIA!’ is the musical for the whole family, it is a wonderful love story in which both mothers and daughters can find themselves. There are not just my memories and feelings in the show, but the memories and feelings of several generations. This wonderful and complex role is a challenge, but I like it very much. There are three hours of singing, dancing and acting, and beyond the eyes of the viewers there is a preparation as for a champion. Besides, there are extremely few occasions when so many artists of different generations gather on the same stage, with a single purpose: to enjoy the audience together!” – Loredana confessed.
Watched by more than 60 million people in 50 countries and designated as the Show of the Year 2018 in Romania, “MAMMA MIA!” will be staged in each city of the tour, in an exceptional casting, which includes the most renowned and beloved Romanian artists.

“MAMMA MIA!” tells the story of Sophie, a young girl who is on the eve of her wedding, wanting to know her natural father and be led by him to the altar. But she is facing three possibilities, so she decides to invite all the three men from the romantic past of her mother to the small Greek island, without telling them why. Things will become totally unexpected, causing many funny, but also thrilling moments that will delight the audience!
Every day, at least 7 “MAMMA MIA!” shows and thousands of performances played in hundreds of countries, on six continents. The musical “MAMMA MIA!” was released in 1999 in London, on West End, and then in the United States of America, on Broadway. Dramatist Catherine Johnson and producer Judy Craymer created this show being inspired by the songs written by Benny Anderson and Bjorn Ulvaeus, former members of ABBA. Thanks to the success that was recorded, the story was adapted for the big screen in 2008, with Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgård in the leading roles, and in 2018, the movie „Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” was released.
