ABBA tribute show ABBA the Concert inhabits the shimmering spectacle and uplifting sound of the seminal Scandinavian pop phenomenon, dashing modern fans back to '70s heydays in an unabashedly glamorous performance. Internationally successful because of its infectious spirit, ABBA the Concert has left other tribute acts in its pixie dust, selling out shows at the Hollywood Bowl and Royal Albert Hall like a pack of sequined Beatles. Often traveling with two original members of ABBA's rhythm section, the tribute band turns ears into funnel cakes as it plays the most iconic ABBA hits, including “Mamma Mia,” “S.O.S.," and "Waterloo." Also known as "The Z," the Zeiterion Theatre hosts concert series and musicals on its elegant stage, framed by an intricately carved wood ceiling and opulent central chandelier.
Past rows of seats covered in crimson, past a red carpet that brings out the auditorium's regality, past a centerpiece chandelier that dangles from the ceiling with the quiet grace of a toddler climbing out of her crib, is a stage. Upon this stage, the Zeiterion Theatre explores the performing arts, hosting national and international performers who enlighten the community to other cultures and inspire the younger population to actively participate in the arts. Every year, Zeiterion, lovingly known as "The Z," also provides 5,000 free tickets to children and families with low incomes, working to make arts more accessible to all.
