A new recording of Henrik Ibsen's masterpiece, starring Calista Flockhart. Nora Helmer has everything a young housewife could want: beautiful children, an adoring husband, and a bright future. But when a carelessly buried secret rises from the past, Nora's well-calibrated domestic ideal starts to crumble. Ibsen's play is as fresh today as it was when it first stormed the stages of 19th-century Europe.

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring: Calista Flockhart as Nora Helmer; Tony Abatemarco as Dr. Rank; Tim Dekay as Torvald Helmer; Jeannie Elias as Anne-Marie and Helene; Gregory Itzin as Nils Krogstad; Jobeth Williams as Mrs. Linde. Translated by Rolf Fjelde. Directed by Rosalind Ayres. Recorded before a live audience at the James Bridges Theater at UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television.

    " Apparently this play was the shit back in 1897. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam Triplett | 2/12/2014

    " I thought the book was very good and definitely ahead of its time. It spread the humanist message without throwing it in your face all of the time. I liked how it was a play and not a traditional novel because I was able to picture the scenes more easily. I would recommend this play to anyone whether they are studying feminism/humanism or not. "

    " Studied it at college, and enjoyed the story! "

    " I admire Ibsen's talent in the realist writing movement, but unfortunately I just couldn't stand most of the characters in this play! Especially Nora and Torvald. I understand why (psychologically) Nora and Torvald acted the way they did, but it was just so frustrating to read! I'm afraid I don't have much else to say about it. "

    " Good feminist play "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen(n) | 1/26/2014

    " I've read this play so many times, mainly because I was forced. One semester in college, I think I had to read it three times. I just want to smack Nora in the face. Hedda Gabler, now that's my girl. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew Fuller | 1/24/2014

    " A Doll's House is one of the most entertaining plays I have read. I think it accurately represents many problems that women encounter in our society (these are dramatized in the play), and definitely encountered when the play was written. I would recommend this to any person, but especially male readers as we need to realize and understand certain forms of "masculinity" are bad and others are not. "

    " Re read this and enjoyed it just as much as when I studied it at A level. "

    " I loved this book it gives a true look at what women rights were then and makes you appreciate the rights you have now!!!!I lvoed it it is a play and i wish o could go see the play!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dorina Hawkes | 12/22/2013

    " This play kind of reminded me of, or at least felt a bit like, and "I Love Lucy" episode. So I liked it... Until the end. Then all the women's rights stuff became clear. I disagree with the moral stance of this play but until the end I liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ayne Ray | 12/11/2013

    " Beautiful, moving, and revolutionary. "

    " Classic drama, ahead of its time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marya | 11/23/2013

    " Given the time period, it's remarkable how well he describes the wife's desire for freedom and independence. Or, is it sad that this problem continues to exist? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Priyanka | 6/8/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arturo Urena | 5/5/2013

    " i think this was a very controversial play at that time because of the ideas it presents. "

About the Author
Author Henrik Ibsen

Henrik Ibsen (1828–1906) was a major nineteenth-century Norwegian playwright, theater director, and poet. He is often referred to as “the father of prose drama” and is one of the founders of modernism in the theater. His major works include Brand, Peer Gynt, An Enemy of the People, Emperor and Galilean, A Doll’s House, Ghosts, The Wild Duck, and The Master Builder. Several of his plays were considered scandalous to many of his era, when European theater was required to model strict mores of family life and propriety. Ibsen’s work examined the realities that lay behind many façades, revealing much that was disquieting to many contemporaries. It utilized a critical eye and free inquiry into the conditions of life and issues of morality.
