This summer Sweden’s National Theatre, the Royal Dramatic Theatre, founded in 1788, will premiere a play based on the life of Charles the XII aka Carolus Rex.The show is based upon the grand and tragic tale of Carolus Rex life as the King of Sweden, strategic mastermind, international celebrity and leader of one of earths most fearsome armies.
We are extremely proud that the play will feature the Sabaton songs “Carolus Rex” and “A Lifetime of War” from the Sabaton Album “Carolus Rex”, with vocals and choir performed by the ensemble.
In the words of the director, Nils Poletti; “The Carolus Rex album have been a major inspiration in the process, and the production team are big fans of Sabaton.”
Starting 27th of June with the final performance 1st of August there will be twenty one performances in Riddarholmskyrkan in Stockholm where Carolus Rex lies buried.
Directed by Nils Poletti in collaboration with Markus Granqvist (scenography, lighting design) and Lena Lindgren (costume design).
