The critically acclaimed dance drama Ghosts returns to the Norwegian Opera and Ballet.
How many lies can a person tolerate? This is the question posed by Henrik Ibsen’s drama Ghosts, which has been transformed into a ballet by theatre director Marit Moum Aune and choreographer Cina Espejord.
Oswald Alving returns from a bohemian existence in Paris to small-town life on a Norwegian fjord. A newly-built orphanage is to be dedicated to his father’s memory, ten years after his death. Mrs Alving welcomes her long-awaited son home, but gradually uncovers the secrets that weigh heavily upon the family. In Ghosts, figures of the past and present dance side by side.
Ibsen's Ghosts is an evocative production in a modern dance style. Nils Petter Molvær has composed new music, which he performs on-stage together with Jan Bang.
With dancers from the Norwegian National Ballet and the Opera's ballet school.
