Peer Gynt is a satirical farce that tells the initiatory journey of a man and his quest for identity. A personality surprisingly deeply grounded in the here and now. Peer Gynt lives his life like a dream, he is fiery, boastful and a liar. Travelling all around the world, he is well determined to make his dream come true: to be an “emperor, king, a ruler.”
“I am happier than I have ever been. I have solved the enigma of my destiny. Everything is forgiven since I feel myself; I, a man, I, Peer Gynt, I, who is called the Emperor of life.”
The thirteen tracks present the most famous pieces from Grieg’s work and were arranged by Géraldine Aliberti and Paul Escobar, and some original songs written by Géraldine.
