Peer Gynt is suffocated by his rural Norwegian village. He gets into fights, tells tall tales and procrastinates. After setting off to escape his problems and responsibilities, Peer goes on fairytale adventures and travels the world in search of fortune, freedom, and answers.

His story, a tragic comedy, a realistic fantasy, and a satyrical biography, is set to a jazz reinterpretation of the classical incidental music by Edvard Grieg, performed by a live jazz band.

This performance is recommended for audiences aged 15+
