Here it is, our story begins!

The road is ahead of us – a world of phantasmagoria.

We hurry, we dream, we believe, we fly,

we want, we play, we spare no effort.

Come with us, be patient,

give us courage in our adventure.

It's for the person who showed us

colors different in the world of the Self.

Then we'll wonder if he was right,

Peter Gynt is the name of our hero!

PETER GYNT by David Hare is a clever and funny contemporary reading of the iconic poem Peer Gynt by Henrik Ibsen. With a lot of mood and a sense of humor, David Hare makes vivid parallels with the world around us, turning Ibsen's hero into a hero of our time, and thus exposes the imperfections of modern man and society with a sharp and disturbing tone.

Our hero travels through different realms, the fruits of his imagination and desire to discover himself, to surpass his own limits, to improve himself. He has the desire, the will and the energy to conquer the world, to color it in the colors of his dreams and longings, but at the end of the road comes the question of the meaning of the efforts made, of the hidden meaning behind the words "be yourself", of the unshared, the missed and the denied. This journey - a metaphor for our life - reveals the dimensions of the human in the metamorphoses of the man of the 21st century.

PETER GYNT is a fascinating and fascinating game of man with the world and the world with man, a game in which the rules are made to be broken until there is no place left to escape.

"Is life hidden only in your dreams?

Open your eyes and see it for real this one time!”
