Peer Gynt

A revival of the very successful narrative ballet made by the Swiss choreographer Gregor Zollig for the Staatstheater Bielfeld in 2014 - Gregor hs no moved to Brausnscheig as the resdent choregrapher. The ballet tells the whole of Ibsen's story and uses a mixture of music by Grieg,  composed for the original Norwegian production of the play in 1876, and music by Gavin Bryars based on Grieg's music The result is highly ambiguous where at times one cannot be sure which is which...

The production is in the repertoire of the theatre throughout the season.
