Description

The Peer Gynt Festival celebrates this magical play with dance and concert performances, art exhibitions, literature and other artistic events. Peer Gynt is Norway's national epic, and has its natural place in world literature. Henrik Ibsen’s story about Peer, the impoverished young man, show-off and adventurer has inspired audiences and tugged at their heartstrings the world over. What does it mean to be oneself? With the Gudbrandsdal scenery as a background, and with Edvard Grieg’s music, the outdoor performance of Peer Gynt at Lake Gålå is the nearest you will get to Henrik Ibsen’s “original” Peer Gynt.
