Ballet: Peer Gynt

Choreography Edward Clug
Music: Edvard Grieg
Chorakademie und Extrachor der Wiener Staatsoper

Premiere: 21. 1. 2018

This story ballet, which was first performed in 2015 in Maribor, is based on music by
Edvard Grieg and the work by Henrik Ibsen, which were chosen by choreographer
Edward Clug as the starting point for his libretto: “Ibsen and Grieg have each invented
their distinct version of Peer Gynt. My goal was to merge them into a new identity,
into a landscape with many doors. I have selected my entrance, which is wide open
to you, dear visitors, and I invite you to step through into a new ballet experience.”
