Dancing Queen - eighteenth century style

Things I learned from YouTube over breakfast: the first Swedish performance of ABBA's Dancing Queen was at a gala at the Swedish Royal Opera, the night before the King's wedding. It is magnificently bizarre, a bewigged and stockinged choir and audience behind them, Anni-Frid and Agnetha in giant costume dresses, Benny and Björn in tights, and everyone is clearly having an amazing time during it.
