About Peer Gynt

Peer Gynt (1970) was a touring theatre production by The National Stage in collaboration with The Norwegian Touring Theatre. It was based on the play by Henrik Ibsen. The production had its premiere at the school Rimbareid Skule.

Sigmund Sæverud directed it, with basis in another production, directed by Finn Kvalem.

During the spring tour, Jon Eikemo interpreted the title role. Anne Gullestad played the role of Aase, and Live Hov played Solveig.

When the production was revived for an autumn tour the same year, Nils Utsi took over the role of Peer Gynt. Hjørdis Ring took over the role of Aase, and Bentine Holm took over the role of Solveig.

The production was a simplified version of The National Stage's production of Peer Gynt from 1969. During the spring tour, only four actors took part, during the autumn tour, five. You may read more about the 1969 production here.
