Theatre, 1948

Lodolezzi Sings

The script was written by Hjalmar Bergman and dramatized for the radio by Herbert Grevenius.

About the production

A romantic comedy about artistry and the great singer who, after 10 years of silence, is convinced to sing again. The old songstress and Royal Dramatic Theatre star Märta Ekström made her comeback in the leading role. Bergman was praised for the musicality in his direction, but the play was otherwise met with mixed reviews.

There are no preserved recordings.
