The Lady From The Sea

By Henrick Ibsen

Yoram Loewenstein Studio
Tel Aviv, Israel


Ellida, “The Lady from the Sea”, leaves her father’s home on the coast and moves to the mountains of West Norway, to the home of her elderly husband, Dr. Wangel.
She shares a roof with him and his two daughters for six years, trapped in a loveless marriage and finding herself serving as a” surrogate” mother and wife in the place of Dr. Wangel’s previous wife, who died at a young age.
The “Fear” that develops in Ellida during these years is the result of a terrible secret that could end up jeopardizing her sanity: a strange man she was engaged to in the faraway past, returns to her from the bottom of the sea and forces her to confront the fateful decision; Should she stay true to her dying marriage and stay in the Norwegian Fjord, or take a journey to the heart of sea and the unknown future?
“The Lady from the Sea” is a poetic, dreamy and vibrant drama brought to stage in an abridged new and current adaptation to Ibsen’s classic masterpiece. Noam Shmuel, the play’s director, has been directing plays for Israel’s “Cameri” Theater (“Games in the Backyard, Gaza 17, Romeo & Juliet and more) and also serves as Artistic Consultant to Omri Nitzan, the manager of the theater. In the past he has directed for the Studio successes such as “Vulkan Junction” and “Bachelors & Bachelorettes”.
