Goodbye Winter, Hello Ibsen!
It’s that time again! It’s Commonweal Theater’s 13th Annual Ibsen Festival – a celebration of Scandinavian art and culture, April 16 – 18 in Lanesboro, MN. Spend the day taking in concerts, films, lectures, and artisan displays, then stay at night for the theatre opening weekend of John Gabriel Borkman. This rarely-produced Ibsen classic about an unscrupulous banker will be a brand-new adaptation from Minnesota’s premiere theater playwright, Jeffrey Hatcher. It is directed by Risa Brainin (Mixed Blood, Guthrie Theatre). Visit ibsenfest.org to see a summary of Commonweal Theatre’s commitment to Ibsen and download a pdf file for the Ibsen Festival schedule of events.
Lanesboro’s Bed and Breakfasts and fine dining restaurants have the welcome mat ready for you to enjoy the full weekend of events. Regardless of your interests, you’ll find a lovely place to stay and a breakfast to suit any taste. Kari’s, a new Scandinavian restaurant in Lanesboro, will be serving special treats for Ibsen Festival weekend.
