Peer Gynt archivePeer Gynt sweeps around the world in a fruitless search for power and glory - outwitting wedding guests, trolls and a belly dancing con-woman who are all intent on bringing him down. Eventually this comic rogue is redeemed by the love of a good woman. The last of Ibsen's verse dramas. NT Ensemble. Based in part on Norwegian folk traditions, Peer Gynt is by turns comic, tragic, lyrical and fantastic.

USER (11Jan01): I thought the staging was really quite accomplished & the acting uniformly good. Especially the chap who played the horse - wow! And the mountain scene. It seems to come in at about 3 hrs 10 now which is a good sign I think. It's just a pity that the cast all looked so bloody miserable in the curtain call. Why? Well done guys.
USER (11Jan01): Very good acting, very good staging. The set, lighting, costumes and music are also exceptionally good. This version is also beautifully written very poetic and lyrical. But there was just a little something lacking which I can't put a finger on. The fact that Peer is played by 3 actors didn't help the lack of flow. But worth a visit!
