After years in the making, audiences loved our major production
"Congratulations. An epic brought to life with vitality and reflection." - Jill.
"An astonishing musical and theatrical banquet." - Taylor.
"Thrilled to have Grieg's music and Ibsen's play finally in one performance. A magnificent achievement." - Kathy and Werner.
"Absolutely brilliant! I can't stop thinking about it." - Mercedes.
Excited theatre goers thronged to the iconic Paddo RSL to see the actors, singers, dancers, choir and orchestra bring the sweeping drama of Peer Gynt alive. They weren't disappointed. Audiences rose to their feet in appreciation at the end of Ibsen’s folk tale about the notorious braggart.
It's the first time on record in Australia that the play has been performed as it was originally conceived with a live orchestra playing Edvard Grieg’s magnificent, much-loved music.
What's coming next?
Endangered Productions has a twinkle in it’s eye. And it’s from the 20th Century.
Two less-performed gems are featured in our new double bill planned for September 2023 in Sydney - A Soldier’s Tale by Igor Stravinsky and Die Kluge by Carl Orff.
Like Peer Gynt, they enter fantasy worlds. A Soldier's Tale is based on the legend of a military deserter who makes a disastrous pact with the Devil and Die Kluge is drawn from a Grimms' Fairy Tales about a clever peasant girl and her very unwise husband, the king.
Our incredible community of supporters, especially our volunteers and donors, makes our performances possible. We are so grateful for their generosity. We could not do it without them.
Please donate to help us put on future productions if you have the means. It pays our professional performers and musicians and keeps our prices down so everyone can attend.
