Tickets for the next ballet première “Peer Gynt”

Surprise your loved ones with tickets for Edward Clug’s narrative ballet ‘Peer Gynt’ which celebrates its première on the 21th January 2018! World-premièred in 2015 in Maribor, the ballet is based on works by Edvard Grieg and Henrik Ibsen which choreographer Edward Clug chose as the source of his libretto: "Both Ibsen and Grieg wrote their own versions of 'Peer Gynt'. My goal was to blend the two as a new whole, as a landscape with many doors. I have chosen my entrance which stands wide open for my honored audience, and I invite you to a new ballet experience”.

Premiere: 21st January 2018 (Première)
Further performances: 22th, 24th, 27th, 30th January, 1st Februar 2018
