Henrik Ibsen
Directed by Roger Vontobel
With english surtitles: 01 February
Ibsen’s hero is a religious man, who denounces both the egoism of people and the double standards of the church. He longs to lead humans to »the right life«. But his faith turns out to be fanaticism. The dramatic poem explores how humankind destroys itself through an unrestrained will, which demands »all or nothing«. Hinrich Schmidt-Henkel, one of the most renowned translators, has transferred the original into a modern prose version.

Peer Gynt

Henrik Ibsen
Directed by Andreas Kriegenburg
last performance with english surtitles: 07 March
Peer is a dreamer. The village society regards the outsider as an enemy. One day the situation escalates concluding in Peer running away. His escape, both from the village and himself, turns into a lifelong journey, which ends where it started – at the door of the love of his youth, Solveig.
Andreas Kriegenburg, one of Germany’s most important and highly awarded directors, tells the story of Peer’s flight from the world in a new and opulent way.
