Edvard Grieg's classic score provides a beautiful background for the story by Heinrich Ibsen, one of Norway's most important writers. The production features fabulous Scandinavian folkloric costumes by Marilyn Skow and, of course, Momentum's fun and funny dancers! For kids ages 4-10 and their families.
