New Mamma Mia! Recording Hits U.S. Stores Nov. 8

News   New Mamma Mia! Recording Hits U.S. Stores Nov. 8 The Spanish cast recording of the Madrid company of Mamma Mia! is set to hit U.S. stores Nov. 8.

The recording will arrive on the Universal Music Latino label. The new disc — the fourth foreign-language recording of the show — was recorded live in May at the Lope de Vega Theatre with the original Spanish cast. Nina — famous for her work in the TV hit "Operación Triunfo" — heads the cast as Donna. The Madrid production of the international hit musical opened in November 2004. It celebrates its first anniversary there Nov. 11. There are currently five recordings of the Mamma Mia! score — in English, Dutch, German, Swedish and, now, Spanish.

Mamma Mia! employs the hit songs of famed pop group ABBA to tell the story of Sophie Sheridan, a young girl who hopes to discover the identity of her father. On the eve of her wedding, she brings three men from her mother Donna's past back to the Greek island they visited over two decades ago.

Mamma Mia! features music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, a book by Catherine Johnson, direction by Phyllida Lloyd and choreography by Anthony Van Laast. In New York, the musical plays the Winter Garden Theatre, which is located at 1634 Broadway. For tickets, call (212) 239-6262.
