(Vildanden 1884) イプセン(Henrik Ibsen 1828-1906) 著、森田草平訳

“This was written at a time when the New York theater was particularly active in its productions of Ibsen, the middle twenties. In 1923 Joseph Schildkraut performed a “Peer Gynt” which one reviewer called “the most beautiful and inspiring production of a noble play that I have seen in twenty years.” In 1924 Eleanora Duse, the great and temperamental Italian actress, visited America and performed “The Lady from the Sea” and “Ghosts.” In the year 1925-26 there were also American performances of “The Wild Duck,” “The Master Builder,” “John Gabriel Borkman,” “Little Eyolf,” “Hedda Gabler,” “Ghosts,” and “An Enemy of the People.” In these performances a new Ibsen interpreter appeared in the person of Eva Le Gallienne, the daughter of a Danish mother and a French father, who is still one of the great ornaments of the American stage. Her performances of “Hedda Gabler” and “The Master Builder” are reckoned among the great events of the theater. More of her later.”
