GRIEG Peer Gynt
written and directed by Bill Barclay adapted from the play by Henrik Ibsen

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.

Music of the Midnight Sun is supported, in part by the American Scandinavian Foundation.

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.

Interested school groups can purchase tickets by contacting the Group Sales office at 617-638-9345 or
