    More about Autumn Sonata

    At the website of Teatret Vårt (Our Theatre) the following, among other things, is written about Autumn Sonata:

    "To master the extraordinary, but fail in the trivial. To lose what is near to win what is distant. To want to, but not be able to. About the failures of childhood and the price of fame. About what we expect from ourselves and each other.

    After several years of touring Europe, the concert pianist Charlotte Andergast returns to Norway to visit her daughter Eva. Mother and daughter haven't seen one another in seven years. Eva lives at the vicarage with her husband, the bishop Viktor. Charlotte doesn't know that her other daughter, Helena, who she left in a home for the neurologically diseased, now lives with Eva and Viktor.

    For Charlotte and Eva this is a chance to talk openly. But can one? Why is Charlotte going back at all? What does Eva hope her mother's visit will mean? The expectations are great and uncertain at the same time.

    Ingmar Bergmann is one of the greatest film- and theatremakers of his time. In 2018 we celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth by staging Autumn Sonata. Bergmann summed the plot up like this: 'A mother and a daughter, what a terrible combination of emotions and confusion and destruction. Everything is allowed, and everything takes place in the name of love and care'. 

    The movie Autumn Sonata (1978) was recorded in Midsund and near Batnfjorden in the county of Møre og Romsdal. With the Molde panorama as a backdrop, global stars Ingrid Bergmann and Liv Ullmann shone as in a competition, staged by Ingmar Bergmann.

    With our production of Autumn Sonata, we also wish to hail Vivi Sunde. After more than 40 years in the ensemble, she now performs her last role as a steadily employed actress at Teatret Vårt (Our Theatre)."
