PEER GYNT, the result of a program cooperation between Croatian National Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Zagreb and SNG Maribor. The great ballet ensemble performance Peer Gynt, choreographed and directed by Edward Clug, will premiere on March 31 on the stage of the Croatian National Theater in Zagreb.
The choreographer of the Slovene National Theatre in Maribor Edward Clug staged this famous drama work in his theatre in 2015, from an entirely different perspective, from the position of our epoch. Like Peer, man today lives on the junction of diverse mental epochs, and many believe how they were born for great things, they only need to comprehend from where they should take off.

PEER GYNT, the story! From Henrik Ibsen to Edvard Grieg and Edward Clug
In the second half of the 19th century, the great Norwegian dramatist Henrik Ibsen created a character of a restless antihero Peer Gynt, an adventurer, liar and a notorious romantic who in the quest for his true self in his dreams and semi-mystical reality did not care about the hardships he left to those closest to him.
Edvard Grieg, listening to Ibsen’s poetry composed the most melodious and famous music overture and today, Solveig’s Song is far more popular than the one that served as inspiration for it. Today, 150 years later, the story of Peer Gynt, rooted both in the folklore and in the unconscious, inspires numerous most diverse artists.
The choreographer of the Slovene National Theatre in Maribor Edward Clug staged this famous drama work in his theatre in 2015, from an entirely different perspective, from the position of our epoch. Like Peer, man today lives on the junction of diverse mental epochs, and many believe how they were born for great things, they only need to comprehend from where they should take off. Even today it is important for many to pick between the motto be yourself and the motto of the trolls be pleased with yourself.
Cultural codes are changing, relationships are breaking, threads are becoming thinner, but … love continues to save and the devotion offered by Solveig is needed today more than ever before. The new, large ensemble performance at the Zagreb Ballet will be choreographed by Edward Clug, a frequent guest of the Zagreb Ballet with his unforgettable soloist and choreographic creations.
