More about The Wild Duck
Despite the execution of Henry Gleditsch, Trøndelag Theatre's production of The Wild Duck was still performed, after a two-week long postponement of the opening, with Kristian Hefte in the role of Relling.
When curtain fell the opening night, the audience got to their feet and stood in silence before quietly leaving the auditorium. Nor was there any applause at the following performances of The Wild Duck.
