At the website of The National Stage the following, among other things, is written about Kristin Lavransdatter:

"The moving story of love's many facets is one of our dearest cultural treasures, providing insight into the daily life of Medieval times, and into inner and outer conflicts we can all identify with.

The depiction of the passionate, forbidden love between Kristin and her Erlend has moved readers through generations. In this story, with a span across four decades, we follow their turbulent life together and as it develops, we experience Kristin's qualms over the choices she has made for her life.

Sigrid Undset's trilogy of novels is known as one of world literature's finest portrayals of women, and contributed to her winning The Nobel Prize in literature in 1928. Svein Sturla Hungnes has adapted the masterpiece into a musical, and the music is composed by Julian Berntzen, who was also behind The People of Hellemyr."
