About Peer Gynt

Peer Gynt is a dramatic poem/play by Henrik Ibsen (1867), who originally intended the text to be read rather than performed. He later took the initiative to have it staged.

Peer Gynt was performed onstage for the first time at Christiania Theater in Christiania (now Oslo) February 24 1876 with music by Edvard Grieg. You may read more about the world premiere here.
