Peer Gynt

2013-2014 National Theatre of Northern Greece
Peer Gynt - Henrik Ibsen
Opening: Theatre of the Society for Macedonian Studies, 15/11/2013

A masterful dramatic poem, based on an old Norwegian folk tale that Ibsen wrote during his stay in Italy in 1867. The principal hero, Peer Gynt, a dreamer and idealist, like another Don Quixote, armed with boundless imagination and his vision of an ideal world, takes us into a realm of dreamlike adventure. Peer Gynt is a dream and at the same time a theatrical fantasy, a production of great visual and musical appeal. A dreamy poem, where the theatre reveals its magical mechanisms and leads us on a journey of initiation into the wisdom of life.
