The Lady from the Sea
When the lighthouse keepers daughter Ellida meets the widower Dr Wangel, she tries to put her long-lost first love far behind her and begin a new life as a wife and stepmother. But the tide is turning, an English ship is coming down the fjord, and the undercurrents threaten to drag a whole family beneath the surface in this passionate and sweeping drama. Ellida must choose between the values of the land: solidity and reliability against those of the sea: mystery and fluidity.
Ibsens lyrical masterpiece includes powerful symbolism and supernatural overtones. Similar to Hedda Gabler and A Dolls House, The Lady from the Sea looks at the constrained social position of women, exploring themes of choice, marriage, responsibility and freedom.
