Performances of the ballet at the Royal Swedish Opera's main stage run through June 11.
The two-act ballet, choreographed by P‹r Isberg, is set to music by Georg Riedel and Stefan Nilsson. Isberg, along with Gunilla Roempke, turned Astrid Lindgren's books into a libretto. Bo-Ruben Hedwall designed the sets, and the costumes were designed by Ann-Mari Anttila.
According to the Associted Press, dancers Anna Valev and Marie Lindquist will alternate in the role of Pippi; the dancers will be accompanied by the Royal Swedish Opera Orchestra, conducted by Anders Eljas.
