Using his imagination, young farmer-boy Peer leaves his farm behind and ventures to faraway places on an epic adventure. Will he be back in time to keep farming as his mother wants him to, or will his daydreams get the better of him? Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen had asked his compatriot Edward Grieg to compose incidental music for Peer Gynt, both drawing inspiration from their homeland fairytales and folk tunes. Almost 150 years later, the Malta Youth Orchestra conducted by Riccardo Bianchi, will bring Grieg’s orchestration to life, with a script adapted from Ibsen’s play to present an unforgettable tale fit for all ages!

Il-bidwi ċkejken Peer, bl-użu tal-immaġinazzjoni tiegħu, iħalli r-razzett tiegħu warajh u jaqbad it-triq għal postijiet imbiegħda f’avventura epika. Jirnexxilu jasal lura fil-ħin biex jibqa’ jkun bidwi, hekk kif tixtiequ jkun ommu? Jew se tirbaħlu l-fantasija minflok? Id-drammaturgu Norveġiż, Henrik Ibsen, kien staqsa lil sieħbu Edward Grieg biex jikkomponi mużika atmosferika għal Peer Gynt, bit-tnejn li huma jispiraw ruħhom mill-ħrejjef u d-daqq folkloristiku ta’ art twelidhom. Kważi 150 sena wara, il-Malta Youth Orchestra, immexxija mill-maestru Riccardo Bianchi, se tagħti l-ħajja lill-orkestrazzjoni ta’ Grieg, bi skript adattat mid-dramm ta’ Ibsen għal rakkont li ma jintesa qatt għal kull età!
