Peer Gynt at Gålå
Three Peer Gynt’s come together in a rare performance at Gålå, the home of Henrik Ibsen’s Peer Gynt in Gudbrandsdalen.
This is a co-production between Peer Gynt – Gålå and The Norwegian Ibsen Company.
This famous outdoor arena visited by 3,000 audience members a day welcomes three of Norway’s most celebrated actors. Dennis Storhøi, Kåre Conradi and Norway’s grand old man, Toralv Maurstad have all played Peer Gynt for many years and in different ways have Peer shaped their lives.
Or have their lives shaped their version of Peer Gynt?
The three men meet head to head in a personal encounter with the audience to see if they can find out what makes Peer Gynt one of the best plays in the entire world.
Toralv Maurstad at the age of 91 remembers when his father played Peer Gynt at The National Theatre in 1936. He himself played opposite his father later on as the young Peer and he is known as the Peer Gynt of our time.
Dennis Storhøi is back at the arena where he has performed Peer Gynt for so many years to high acclaim among audiences and in the press. Kåre Conradi’s Peer has been mentioned many times in both foreign and Norwegian press as a tour de force.
