Actress Elsa Weckerlin: Music symbolizes strength, love and compassion
“Being able to play Anna makes me so happy,” said Selena Piper. It’s quite a challenge to bring this role to the musical stage after the character became famous with two hits and has millions of fans around the world. As Elsa, Sabrina Weckerlin is allowed to sing “Lass now los” (“Let it go”) on stage every evening. “The musical is unparalleled in any other display of strength, love, benevolence, and compassion,” Weckerlin said.
The musical premiered on Broadway in New York in March 2018 under the English title “Frozen”.
