Henrik Ibsen Collection
"The Henrik Ibsen Collection" features ten star-studded BBC productions of Ibsen's most famous plays, together in one six-disc box set. Considered the father of modern realistic drama, Henrik Ibsen is one of the most important playwrights of all time. His plays attacked the values of the Victorian society in which he lived and were considered scandalous during his lifetime. Yet many of his themes are thoroughly modern today. "The Henrik Ibsen Collection" features stellar casts in Ibsen's best-known works, including Ingrid Bergman and Michael Redgrave in "Hedda Gabler," Judi Dench and Michael Gambon in "Ghosts," Anthony Hopkins and Diana Rigg in "Little Eyolf," Denholm Elliot in "The Wild Duck," Sir Donald Wolfitt and Leo McKern respectively in two extraordinary productions of "The Master Builder," and much more. It's a quintessential part of any theater lover's library.
