More about The Johanne Dybwad Tour

Rosmersholm, The Master Builder and Ghosts premiered at The Theatre in Trondhjem, after which The Johanne Dybwad Tour went on to visit Bergen (Norway), Germany and Denmark.

A Doll's House premiered at The National Stage in Bergen, Norway, after which it was part of the touring schedule in Germany and Denmark.

The tour's productions were not well received in Germany. At the time, German theatre was characterised by naturalism, and the view of most German critics and audience members was that the Norwegian productions lacked depth. However, The German director Max Reinhardt, who was part of the revival of theatricality trend, noticed the potential of Johanne Dybwad. In the time to follow, she came to find great inspiration in his work.
