Photo Flash: 'Peer Gynt' at The Guthrie
The Guthrie presents Peer Gynt, translated and adapted by Robert Bly from the original by Henrik Ibsen. Directed by Tim Carroll, performances run through March 2, 2008 on the Wurtele Thrust Stage at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis.
"Peer Gynt is arrogant, manipulative, and dishonest, yet we can't take our eyes off him. This timeless fantasy captures the misadventures of its charismatic central character on a journey to find his proper place in the world. Henrik Ibsen's rarely-produced masterpiece comes alive at the Guthrie in a newly-commissioned translation by prolific poet and Minnesota native Robert Bly," explain press notes.
Mark Rylance stars in this world premiere adaptation, which features a 19-member ensemble cast including many familiar Guthrie faces. Set and costume design by Laura Hopkins, lighting design by Stan Pressner.
Currently in previews, Peer Gynt opens January 18 and plays through March 2, 2008. Tickets are priced from $24 to $69 and are on sale through the Guthrie Box Office at 612-377-2224, toll-free 877-44-STAGE and online at www.guthrietheater.org.
