Time for Ibsen

Time for Ibsen

Come celebrate Henrik Ibsen in Oslo 8–19 September.

Henrik Ibsen, second only to Shakespeare in the world of playwrights, spent his last years in Oslo. Traces of his life here still remain: his last apartment at the Ibsen Museum, his famous daily walking route – today paved with Ibsen qoutes, his regular hangout Grand Café, and his burial site at Oslo's memorial cemetery. 

Oslo’s National Theatre has staged Ibsen's plays almost yearly for more than a century. From 8 to 19 September 2018 the theatre hosts its biennial International Ibsen Festival, where theatre companies from across the world gather to challenge us with Ibsen’s timeless insights.

Enjoy his plays, explore his life – it's time to celebrate all that is Ibsen!
