Print Room at the Coronet & The Norwegian Ibsen Company
Ellida, a lighthouse keeper’s daughter, was born where the fjord meets the ocean. Now trapped in a difficult marriage to a British doctor, Ellida longs for the open sea. Will the return of a former lover offer her a real choice?
A story of self-determination, modern families, loving other people’s children, and always looking for the perfect relationship, The Lady from the Sea was shocking in its challenge of societal norms when it premiered in 1889.
To mark the 130th anniversary of The Lady from the Sea, we collaborated with the Norwegian Ibsen Company for this new staging, bringing with it a deep connection to the Norwegian culture in which Ibsen lived.
