The Master Builder

Henrik Ibsen
Broadway Digital Archive
Directed by John Stix

Widely regarded as an allegory of Ibsen's own life, this classic production follows title character Halvard Solness as he begins work on his finest project, encouraged by a young woman from his past to finally build her the "castles in the sky" he once promised.

But as the building gathers pace and the monumental structure reaches ever higher, Solness no longer seems to be acting under his own volition.

Production duration: 1 hr 43 min
