FEEL like the dancing queen when The Ten Sopranos bring Mamma Mia – The Concert to the Capital Theatre this Sunday at 7pm.

The show, originally scheduled for 4 December, has travelled across Australia and promises to have the audience stomping, clapping and singing along to the greatest hits of ABBA.

Managing director of production company Giant Entertainment, Wayne Kalil, said the show is not an ABBA tribute act, rather a unique display of classical singing meeting contemporary music.

“If you like ABBA, you’ve got to go see this show. If you like quality singing, you’ve got to go see this show,” he said.

“This isn’t a lookalike, soundalike, this is brand new harmonies. It’s exciting, the singing is shared among 10 great singers and it’ll be a dance along, sing along frenzy.

“The fact that The Ten Sopranos can sing ABBA is quite unique, and it sounds nothing like what you’d expect.

“It’s not an opera delivery, it’s a truly creative delivery. There’s new and exciting harmonies, and the meticulous detail on every note sung is the strength of this act.”

The Ten Sopranos have been performing Mamma Mia – The Concert ­for three years, however time on stage has been dictated by COVID-19 restrictions.

Lead by internationally acclaimed and award-winning singer Penny Pavlakis, the group has been performing since 2006, releasing two CDs and a DVD.

“The lead singer is one of the most critically acclaimed singers in Australian history, Penny Pavlakis. She’s won every opera, classical and contemporary competition there is in Australia over the years,” Mr Kalil said. “She brings star power to that stage no one else brings.”
