Folkoperan, an opera house in Stockholm, is currently presenting God Disguised (Förklädd gud), a lyrical suite composed in 1940 by Swedish composer Lars-Erik Larsson to lyrics by Hjalmar Gullberg. The production features EU citizens who helped promote the show by holding signs about their performance and offering free tickets to passers-by.
This is what happened:
This campaign buries the lede, nevertheless it conveys a powerful message. Is it too much to ask that we actually see the people in front of us—some of whom may be suffering and in need of a hand up?
“In God Disguised we want to give people a chance to see and get to know the people we have made invisible in our society,” says Mellika Melouani Melani, Artistic Director at Folkoperan.
The premiere of God Disguised was on the 15th of February and the show will run until the 26th of March 2017.
