CHRIS DINGLI Script
Edvard Grieg Peer Gynt, Op. 23
Using his imagination, young farmer-boy Peer leaves his farm behind and ventures to faraway places in an epic adventure. Will he be back in time to continue farming as his mother told him to, or will his daydreams get the better of him?
Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen had asked his compatriot Edvard Grieg to compose incidental music for Peer Gynt, and both drew on the traditions of their homeland for inspiration. Nearly 150 years later, the Malta Youth Orchestra will bring Grieg’s orchestration to life, with a script adapted from Ibsen’s play penned by Chris Dingli to present an unforgettable tale fit for all ages.
