The Norwegian National Touring theatre, Riksteatret, has gathered some of the country’s finest actors in a completely new version of Peer Gynt starring Anders Baasmo in the title role. »I have always wanted to play Peer Gynt«, Baasmo says. »If we do it the right way, I think we can get closer to the core, closer to what the play is really about. I hope we can create a show that allows people to recognise more of themselves in Peer«. (riksteatret.no).
The play is directed by Ole Anders Tandberg and will be an exciting encounter with Ibsen’s classic – a performance for everyone, whether you are an Ibsen connoisseur or meet Peer for the first time. Premiere date is August 27. Click here for tickets and tour program.
