About the Authors
  • This book is a revised and expanded version of Ingmar Bergman: Four Decades in the Theatre, by the same authors, published more than ten years ago. The developments that have occurred in the interim, clustered around Bergman's triumphant return to the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm after years of self-imposed exile, have profoundly altered the course of this extraordinary career. Still the only book of its kind in English, this amply illustrated study uses detailed and comprehensive analyses of a range of Bergman's productions to chart the full scope and depth of his achievement in the theatre, from the early Macbeth in 1944 to his new, widely acclaimed performance of Ibsen's Peer Gynt in 1991.

    • Fully revised and expanded version of Ingmar Bergman: Four Decades in the Theatre (1982)
    • Examines Bergman's most recent work in the theatre including his production of Peer Gynt 1991
    • Contains photographs from recent productions
