Which Witch

Which Witch is a musical written by Norwegian Singer/composers Benedicte Adrian and Ingrid Bjørnov.

The storyline for Which Witch was found in the witch finder's manual Malleus Maleficarum, and the original script was written by Adrian and Bjørnov's manager Ole A. Sørlie. The lyrics of the early concert versions were written by Helen Hampton and Roger Avenstrup, in collaboration with Adrian, Bjørnov and Sørli.

The first performance was in Grieghallen, Bergen on May 27 1987, with Adrian playing the female lead, and Bjørnov as musical director.

The material was constantly developed throughout a period of eight years, resulting in several national and international tours presenting continuously updated concert versions of the musical.

The Operamusical Which Witch opened at the Piccadilly Theatre in London on October 22 1992 and ran for 76 performances. The London version was followed by a hugely successful Norwegian tour, and further performances of a Norwegian version in Holmenkollen, Oslo during the summer of 1994.
