In May the Harlem Globetrotters come to Sweden for their first and only performance here in 24 years. In 1993 the Harlem Globetrotters attracted an audience of 15 346 in Globen, Stockholm. This remains a public record for sports events at Globen.

The Globetrotters have performed for kings and queens, presidents and popes and are known for breaking down social and cultural barriers through the art of basketball. Whether or not you are interested in the sport, this is an experience you won’t want to miss!

For the past four hundred years the descending bass line constructed from a perfect fourth that flows with ineluctable melancholy from tonic to dominant and back again has provided the harmonic structure for the musical genre known as the lament. Like the beat of an aching heart, this anguished progression has inspired the work of composers ancient and modern, from the iconic monodies of Purcell and Monteverdi to the epic laments of Elton John, Paul Simon, Led Zeppelin, Muse and Bob Dylan. Exploring the doleful magic of musical fourths, this evening’s concert turns on a profound question. Can consolation be found in the rising fourths of Strauss’ Metamorphosen, a musical monument to the tragedy of the human condition?

Come celebrate the 4th of July a few days early this year with our free beach picnic event!
