Edvard Grieg: Peer Gynt, Op. 23

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 Ibsen’s play was only recently rediscovered in the 1980s. We are thrilled to feature Star Trek legend John de Lancie as the narrator, acting alongside other special guests to bring this 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.
