The Old Vic Theatre welcomes Ralph Fiennes in January 2016 as the Lambeth venue hosts Henrik Ibsen’s The Master Builder. Not only will it be a chance to revisit a beloved classic story, it will also be an opportunity to witness the work of one of the nation’s most respected actors of the stage and screen.
It appears at the Old Vic Theatre as it continues to explore an exciting path with new Artistic Director Matthew Warchus, whose tenure has so far seen success with shows such as Future Conditional with Rob Brydon.
The master builder of the title is Halvard Solness, hailed by those around him for his impressive architectural designs, which include some of the tallest spires around, whilst his marriage is going downhill. But his world changes when he meets Hilde Wangel, a girl from the country, and he must confront an event from his past when she was just 14. Other characters include his wife Aline, Doctor Herdal, Knut Brovik, Ragnar Brovik and Kaia Fosli.
For this production, Ralph Fiennes portrays Halvard Solness, working from the adapted script by the acclaimed David Hare. Together with director Matthew Warchus they will craft a compelling and mesmerising production.
But audiences would expect no less from Fiennes, whose career has seen him take on a range of critically acclaimed performances on the stage and screen. In terms of London theatre productions, his credits include Man And Superman at the Lyttelton National Theatre, Love’s Labour’s Lost for the Royal Shakespeare Company and God Of Carnage at the Gielgud Theatre, to name but a few. He is also known to cinema fans for the likes of Schindler’s List, The English Patient, The Grand Budapest Hotel and Skyfall, amongst others.
