About Henrik Ibsen

Henrik Ibsen was an iconic Norwegian playwright and poet. He is known as a founder of modernism in theater and literature, constantly pushing the boundaries of theatrical conventions. His plays are renowned for their psychological depth and insight into issues related to family, gender roles, morality, religion and social class.

Ibsen wrote some of the best known works in theater today, including A Doll’s House (1879), Ghosts (1881) and Hedda Gabler (1890). These plays explore themes such as feminism and family dynamics with a realistic eye that has become his signature style. Ibsen's influence on theater is still felt around the world today; he has been translated into over 100 languages, with more than 100 million copies printed of his works since their initial publication.
