PEER GYNT Comes To National Theatre Of Greece
The National Theatre of Greece presents PEER GYNT by Henrik Ibsen on the Ziller Building main stage, running through April 2019.
If Peer Gynt did indeed exist, he must have been full of contradictions, either a liar or a fantasist. He challenged life head-on or shrank from it, attempted the impossible or avoided everything, defied reality or tried to run away from it, chased fortune or was a slave to wishful thinking, travelled to the ends of the earth or wandered around locations that he could see only in his mind's eye, searched for himself or for an escape, was "enough to himself", so that he would go down in history, or remained a simple, humble "button", like most people.
Ibsen's masterpiece, inspired by Norwegian fairy-tales and legends, is a romantic work that manages at the same time to be absolutely modern, about a blind Odyssey of the West, about dreams and the path to their realization.
