Solveig: .. peer aspera ad astra

A musical adventure that challenges Ibsen

Solveig was not a passive woman who just sat for years waiting for her beloved Peer Gynt - she was a firework! Almost 150 years after the premiere of Henrik Ibsen's world-famous drama, it is time for Solveig to tell her version of what really happened.

Musical star and former Stjernekamp participant Heidi Ruud Ellingsen has gathered a team of stars who together have created the musical theater concert Solveig: .. peer aspera ad astra, about Solveig's journey from the cabin to the stars, and down again.

Ellingsen found out that Solveig had her own dreams, her own ambitions, and that she uncompromisingly built her own career as a musical artist. Solveig was not the passive woman who just sat around for years waiting for her beloved Peer - she had far greater ambitions.

The performance has been a great success on stages all over the country, and now it's Trondheim's turn. This will be a great festival experience!
