First performed in Copenhagen in 1879. It is Christmas Eve. Nora wraps presents, decorates the tree and plays with her beloved children. Excitement and love fills the Helmers’ apartment. Nora is her husband's cherished 'songbird' and the romance of their marriage has been played out over the years. But beneath the carefree surface of their lives, the secret of how Nora saved her husband's life begins to emerge. Is this idyll a paradise or a prison? Nora must charm, delight and seduce if she is to survive. Tension increases as the characters react against one another and this taut and gripping drama ends as Nora demands her right to individual freedom. Voted one of the top 50 classics of world literature.
