Grieg’s Peer Gynt
Edvard Grieg: Peer Gynt, Op. 23
Join the WSO and John de Lancie for an unprecedented experience of music and theatre.
The anticipation of the fearsome climaxes of The Hall of the Mountain King and the floating serenity of Morning Mood are two of Grieg’s most famous themes. But what about the story from which they come: Peer Gynt?
Grieg’s incidental music for Henrik Ibsen’s play was only recently rediscovered in the 1980s. We are thrilled to feature Star Trek legend John de Lancie as the narrator, delivering his own adaptation of Ibsen’s work and acting alongside other special guests to bring this unique production to life.
Consider coming to the performance early and join us for a pre-concert chat from the stage at 6:45 pm.
This is one of our six eligible TRIO PASS concerts.
