Ingmar Bergman’s spellbinding adaptation of A Doll’s House, directed by Patricia Benecke.
At that moment I realised that for eight years I’d been living with a stranger, and I’d had three children with him.
Everything’s perfect in Nora’s world. She has beautiful children, an elegant house and her loving husband has just won a big promotion at work. But Nora’s perfect world is held together by a secret, and when that secret is out the whole thing will come crashing down.
Nora is the celebrated director and writer Ingmar Bergman’s acclaimed adaptation of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House – one of the best-loved dramas in literature. A Doll’s House caused huge controversy when it was first performed in 1879, and the story remains an astonishingly significant comment on the role of women in society.
In 2008 the Belgrade scored an enormous hit with another Ingmar Bergman play, Scenes From A Marriage, directed by Trevor Nunn.

“The piece certainly grips throughout its taut, 95-minute running time, while Ibsen’s superbly skilful plotting snaps shut like a vicious trap.” ***
— Daily Telegraph
“A moving play that can be recommended unreservedly.”
“The scene in which the scales fall from Nora’s eyes is powerful and moving.”
