First performed in Copenhagen in 1879. Christmas Eve. Excitement and love filled the Helmer’s apartment. Nora is her husband’s cherished ‘songbird’ and the romance of their marriage has been played out over the years. But beneath the carefree surface of their lives, the secret of how Nora saved her husband’s life begins to emerge. Tension increases as the characters react against one another and this taut and gripping drama ends as Nora demands her right to individual freedom. One of the great landmark plays of the nineteenth century.
