The Chinese version of the classic musical Mamma Mia! will hit the stage in Guangzhou and Beijing from November this year, the Beijing Tianqiao Performing Arts Center announced on Tuesday.

The musical, with Chinese as the 14th language version of Mamma Mia! since it debuted in London in 1999, will be performed at the Guangzhou Opera House and the Beijing Tianqiao Performing Arts Center.

The musical has been performed worldwide over the past two decades with sales topping $2 billion (Dh7.3 billion). The Chinese version has toured 24 cities in China and attracted 600,000 people since its debut in 2011.

Tian Yuan, the producer of the Chinese version, attributed its success to the adherence to the high standards of both the “British quality” and “Chinese production.”

“The performance this year will maintain the musical’s high standards and strive to reflect the progress of Chinese musicals in recent years,” Tian said.
