70 years after Det Norske Teatret first staged Peer Gynt, Erik Ulfsby and his excellent team have developed a new version, with the role of old Peer congenially filled by Toralv Maurstad. The play's original chronology has been broken up and fragments of Peer's life reordered - all observed by an aged spirit who is on the threshold to the other side. Maurstad's acting is "overwhelmingly great. He carries the role of Peer Gynt on his 92-year-old shoulders. This is pure theatrical magic." "A Peer Gynt for eternity." (Aftenposten) "A masterly Maurstad. There is still a roguish rabble-rouser in his old Peer Gynt. Svein Tindberg as the button moulder is perfect casting." (VG)
