Rosmersholm was revived twice: First in 1927, as part of the celebration of Johanne Dybwad's 40 years as an actress, and then the next year, as one of six different productions The National Theatre staged to celebrate the 100 year anniversary for the birth of Ibsen: Brand, The Wild Duck, Ghosts, Rosmersholm, The League of Youth and An Enemy of the People were all performed during one week of jubilee celebrations.

Henrik Ibsen was born March 20 1828, and Rosmersholm had the honour of being performed March 20 1928, at the very day of the anniversary.
