El Elenco – My Spanish Word of the Day 8/19/2015

Today, I am participating in the Travel Trinkets And Memories blogging event.  I would like to share with you a souvenir from Madrid that is very special to me.  It is a CD of the Spanish edition of the musical Mamma Mia! performed by the original cast.  Elenco (theater cast) is my Spanish word of the day.

My husband and I saw the show on the Gran Vía – the Broadway of Madrid – back in 2007.  At the time, we were possibly the only two people on the planet who did not know that the music in this show is based on the songs of the Swedish pop group ABBA.  We were pleasantly surprised as the music generated memories of our youth.  This was our first trip to Madrid together, and this show was one of the best parts of our stay there.  Nowadays, we often enjoy listening to this CD of the Madrid elenco.

The star of the show was Spanish singer and actress Nina.  She plays the character named Donna.  I just love her singing voice.  I have three examples of her songs below.  I hope you enjoy them.
