We've taken Henrik Ibsen's "unstageable" drama and Edvard Grieg's classical incidental music, and turned it into a brand new, original jazz reinterpretation. Performed live by a three-piece jazz band and a cast of three, 'Peer Gynt' is half-way between a piece of theatre and jazz gig.
Peer Gynt supposedly lives a life alongside princes, trolls and magic animals -- but everyone knows he’s lying!
His story, a tragic comedy, a realistic fantasy, and a satyrical biography, spans an entire lifetime and half the known world. Along the way, he procrastinates, flees, explores, loves, regrets, and learns.
