Peer Gynt at the SF Symphony
The SF Symphony is putting on selections from “Peer Gynt” January 17, 18, 19, including music by Grieg and staged scenes from the play!
The talented James Darrah directs, with Michael Tilson Thomas at the helm of the music. Even better, our dear friend Jessie Merlin is appearing as the Troll King!
Field trip, everybody.
Peer Gynt: Adventurer, Fraud, Poet, and Truth-Seeker
An excellent essay on Peer Gynt’s character, full of contradictions and energy. Written by the leading Ibsen expert in Norway, the inimitable Vigdis Ystad.
Peer Gynt at Gålå Review
A review of the production we saw in Norway (reviewed by Benedikte Berntzen). The production takes place on a mountain lake every year in the Gudbrands Valley, where the historical Peer Gynt lived.
All Ibsen, all the time. This tri-lingual website has real-time links to Ibsen events all over the world, PLUS all the Ibsen history you could ask for, PLUS production histories for his plays! Plus… well, everything.
Big cheer for our friend Benedikte Berntzen, who is one of the editors!
