ABBA The Museum presents a new exhibition on Mamma Mia film series

ABBA The Museum presents a new interactive exhibition – Mamma Mia! Behind The Movie Magic. The exhibition will show props, costumes including Meryl Streep’s famous dungarees, Stellan Skarsgård’s disco outfit and Lily James’s jeans, drawings and more from behind and in front of the camera.

The idea behind the showIngmarie Halling, designer of ABBA The Museum’s exhibitions and Björn Ulvaeus are the instigators of the new exhibition about Mamma Mia! (2008) and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018). The idea is to show the work behind the films – Who was in the cast? Where were they filmed? Which technology was used? These are just some of the many questions that the exhibition answers.
In collaboration with the global producer of Mamma Mia, Judy Craymer and Universal Pictures in Los Angeles, ABBA The Museum has received access to props and film clips never before shown in Sweden. The new exhibition will tell the story behind the films in the same humorous and intimate way as we talk about ABBA at the museum.
A look behind the cameraThe exhibition will give visitors a look behind the camera lens using pictures, film clips, props, scenography and costumes, and of course interviews with the participants, says Ingmarie Halling, Creative Director ABBA The Museum. It’s very exciting that we have been asked to collaborate with ABBA The Museum in Stockholm to display some of the ‘behind the scenes’ moments from the studio sets and on location, and show a glimpse at how we created the Greek Idyll for both the first and second movies, together with the iconic costumes worn by our leading cast, including Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan, says Judy Craymer.
In Mamma Mia! films, music plays a crucial role. Everything is built on ABBA’s treasure trove of songs and the exhibition will include clips from recording sessions at Benny Andersson’s studio in Stockholm, where Swedish musicians recorded the backing tracks for the film score.
Mamma Mia! Behind The Movie Magic opens on Saturday, April 6, 2019. The exhibition runs at ABBA The Museum in Stockholm until April 2020.
