Peer Gynt travels the world, only to return home after decades of real and imaginary adventures to his Solveig. Henrik Ibsen's classic play depicts the entire span of human life, along with its dreams and hopes, and longing for home.
Famous choreographer Heinz Spoerli decided to relate the journey of Peer Gynt in dance once his own life had progressed to the point where he felt it sufficed. Utilizing classical ballet and the spell-bounding music of Grieg along with contemporary dance and and music, Spoerli was able to channel the landscape of Peer Gynt's soul. "I wanted to dig deeper into the story and get under the surface," says Spoerli. The result is dramatic ballet at its most affecting.
Heinz Spoerli is one of the most acclaimed choreographers of our time. The Finnish National Ballet has presented several of his numerous works, including the ballets Le Fille mal Gardée, La belle vie, and most recently, A Midsummer's Night Dream.
