Henrik Ibsen found the inspiration for his 1867 drama Peer Gynt in Peter Christen Asbjørnsen’s Norwegian closet drama of the same name. Its success soon led the playwright to create a stage version, and he commissioned Edvard Grieg to compose the incidental music. The play had its premiere in Christiania, today's Oslo, in 1876. Slovenian choreographer Edward Clug combines Ibsen and Grieg’s versions to create a special dance experience. He uses the two well-known Peer Gynt Suites, complementing them with Grieg's String Quartet in G minor op. 27, the Piano Concerto in A minor op. 16, and selections from the Lyric Pieces.
