Please note that there is no intermission in these concerts.
In the second of the Music of the Midnight Sun concerts, Finland-based Russian conductor Dima Slobodeniouk leads a staged performance of Peer Gynt, by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen and composer Edvard Grieg. This fantastical, epic tale, theatrically reimagined by director-playwright Bill Barclay, follows Peer on his adventures from his home village through the Hall of the Mountain King, to Northern Africa, and back.
The pre-rehearsal talk on March 7 will be given by Bill Barclay and Robert Kirzinger, Director of Program Publications. The talk will begin at 9:30am, and admission included with open rehearsal ticket.
