PETER - The Musical

 

"And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church,

and the gates of Hades will not overcome it" (Matt. 16:18)

 

PETER - THE MUSICAL is written by the priest and lyricist Lars Collmar and composer Daniel Engstrom and was first performed in Stockholm, Sweden, in 2007. This year's production of the musical is an adapted version, with new music and new arrangements. The production engages about 20 singers and musicians.

 

PETER – THE MUSICAL portrays a story of Jesus’ final days based on the disciple Simon Peter’s perspective and focuses on the resurrection rather than on the crucifixion. "If it ends with death, it’s just a tragedy, even if the story is intriguing. If He’s not resurrected, we have nothing left to say. (...) If you scoop the resurrection aside and make the story about morality, it becomes something else and much more uninteresting . Then you can manage life without God whatsoever "- Lars Collmar.

 

The musical is approximately 80 minutes long with no intermission. The production in Laguna Woods was a theatrical concert and the songs were performed in Swedish, while the spoken dialogue was in English.
