Ibsen's The Master Builder

Sat, Mar 28 – $25

 The Master Builder: Ruthless and revered architect Halvard Solness is obsessively driven—until a young woman from his past stops him in his tracks. Hilde, a force of unbridled energy coupled with childlike willfulness, enters the master builder’s home and head, trailing mysterious talk of past promises. As she urges Solness to ever greater and less sustainable heights, his tragedy-haunted wife Aline watches from the sidelines, an unwilling participant in an off-kilter love triangle. There follows a battle of truth, history and youth, ending in Hilde persuading Solness to once again climb a tower of his own building, his final ascent.   The Commonweal Theatre, based in Lanesboro, MN, is dedicated to delighting and challenging audiences with the works of Henrik Ibsen, the Father of Modern Drama. The most famous of Norwegian playwrights, Ibsen’s nonconformist views fill his plays with metaphors that paint a picture of contemporary society, despite being written over 100 years ago.
