By Andrew Wilson,

In celebration of the fifteen year run of the musical Mamma Mia!, which features the music of ABBA, two members of the Swedish group will perform with the London cast at this year’s Olivier Awards.

According to Variety Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus will perform in the finale of the Olivier Awards, much like America’s Tony Awards. Included in the London cast of Mamma Mia! is Broadway star and film actress Bernadette Peters and international opera singer Joseph Calleja.

Noted by Broadway World Mamma Mia! is the ninth longest running show in Broadway history, and continues its success around the world having been seen by more than 54 million people in 39 productions in 14 languages in over 400 cities. The current North American Tour alone has played over 3000 performances in over 130 cities with 125 repeat visits.

The Olivier Awards will take place on April 13 at the Royal Opera House in London, and will broadcast a full highlights package on ITV.
