    A new recording of Henrik Ibsen’s masterpiece, starring Calista Flockhart. Nora Helmer has everything a young housewife could want: beautiful children, an adoring husband, and a bright future. But when a carelessly buried secret rises from the past, Nora’s well-calibrated domestic ideal starts to crumble. Ibsen’s play is as fresh today as it was when it first stormed the stages of 19th-century Europe.

    A Doll's House is a three-act play written by Norway's Henrik Ibsen. It premiered at the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen, Denmark, on December 21, 1879. The play is set in a Norwegian town circa 1879. A Doll's House was based on the life of Laura Kieler, a good friend of Ibsen. Much that happened between Nora and Torvald happened to Laura and her husband, Victor. Similar to the events in the play, Laura signed an illegal loan to save her husband. She wanted the money to find a cure for her husband's tuberculosis.

    Often considered to be Ibsen's most popular play in his lifetime, The League of Youth caused fighting in the streets, with conservatives claiming it was an attack on their party and liberals claiming it was an attack on theirs! A thought-provoking comedy that's sure to feel shockingly familiar. Unusually for Ibsen, this play has a lot of humour and a more-or-less happy ending.

    Ett dockhem är ett av Ibsens mest lästa och uppsatta dramer. Dramat utspelar sig i ett av Köpenhamns välbärgade hem, där den vackra Nora spelar rollen som perfekt hustru och mor. Men allt är inte som det ser ut vid första anblicken. Noras inre föreställningar och förväntningar harmonerar inte med omvärldens realiteter, och hon tvingas att ta upp kampen med livslögnen vid sitt möte med juristen Krogstad, som hotar hennes annars bekymmerslösa tillvaro.

    Rosmersholm is a play surrounding the deep and intense political and cultural change in Norway in the middle of the 1880s, a period during which the traditional ruling class were forced to relinquish their right to impose their ideals on the rest of society. We follow Johannes Rosmer, a pastor who has resigned from his position; Rebecca West, a woman who sees Rosmer's potential and believes she can help him to realize his dream of creating a world of "happy, noble people"; and Headmaster Kroll, Rosmer's former best friend.

    Ein Nussknacker liegt an Weihnachten für Marie auf dem Gabentisch. Mitten in der Nacht erwacht die Holzpuppe zum Leben, denn der Nussknacker hat noch eine alte Rechnung mit dem Mausekönig offen. Ein turbulenter Kampf bricht los. Peter Tschaikowski (1840-1893) war ein russischer Komponist, der seit seinem fünften Lebensjahr Klavier spielte und zunächst in St. Petersburg als Beamter arbeitete. Anton Rubinstein förderte sein Musikstudium und fortan ging Tschaikowskis Musik um die Welt.

    Dans cette maison où la femme est et n'est qu'une poupée, les hommes sont des pantins, veules et pleutres. Sans doute Nora incarne-t-elle une sorte de moment auroral du féminisme, alors qu'être, c'est sortir, partir. Et Ibsen, grâce à ce chef-d'œuvre, accède au panthéon de la littérature mondiale. Mais si sa poupée se met, sinon à vivre, du moins à le vouloir, au point de bousculer au passage l'alibi de l'instinct maternel, c'est qu'autour d'elle les hommes se meurent.

    Peer Gynt är ett äventyrsdrama, skrivet med stor humor och mycket ironi på fyndig fri vers med ett djärvt folkligt språk. Peer Gynt är ett av Ibsens populäraste verk. Det kombinerar prosans äventyrsberättelse, poesins versspråk och dramats dialog och handling. Dramat är mycket längre än normalt för dramer, men har regelbundet satts upp i förkortad form; första gången 1876 med Griegs senare så välkända musik.

Dramaet udspiller sig i en lille norsk kystby, hvor lægen ved det netop opførte kurbad, Dr. Tomas Stockmann, får mistanke om, at badevandet er forurenet.

Dr. Stockmann forventer, på baggrund af sin opdagelse, at blive mødt af hele byens taknemmelighed, men ikke alle er lige begejstrede for lægens afsløring.
