The Norwegian National Ballet will perform Ibsen’s Ghosts in November.

 

The play, released at the end of the 19th Century, is considered one of Henrik Ibsen’s most controversial works, with its razor-sharp criticism of traditional morals.

 

The show will transfigure the age-old classic into a searing balletic production to depict the power struggles between the sexes. Ballet dancers will also address social taboos such as incest and religious tyranny.

 

Founded in 1958, the Norwegian National Ballet is the only classical ballet company in Norway. It tours both in Norway and around the globe, with recent visits to St Petersburg, Shanghai, London, Berlin and Paris.

 

The performance is one of the programmes of the World Cultures Festival 2019 – The Nordics.

 

It will be staged on November 1 and 2 at the Kwai Tsing Theatre Auditorium.

 

Tickets are available at URBTIX.
