From the Program

"A Doll's House" was Ibsen's first international success. It aroused extraordinary controversy wherever it was staged or read. The problem of women's rights was particularly topical at that time in Norway. Ibsen's wife was an outspoken champion of the feminine cause, and with the publication of "A Doll's House", Ibsen was hailed as the special champion of women. Ibsen himself protested against any of his plays being regarded as social or moral tracts. Nineteen years after he wrote "A Dolls House" he was invited to address the Norwegian Association for Women's Rights in Oslo. He accepted but his speech must have been a disappointment: "I am not a member of the Association for Women's Rights, I have never written a play to further a social purpose. I must decline the honour of being said to have worked for the Women's Rights movement. I am not even very sure what Women's Rights are".
