Production images have been released today for The Master Builder at The Old Vic, starring Ralph Fiennes.
A searing and mesmeric exploration of power, control, death and life, Henrik Ibsen’s late masterpiece The Master Builder comes to The Old Vic in a lively new adaptation by David Hare (multi-award-winning writer and author of 32 plays for the stage including Skylight, The Absence Of War, Amy’s View, Pravda and Stuff Happens). Directed by Matthew Warchus and starring Ralph Fiennes, Linda Emond and Sarah Snook.
The master builder, Halvard Solness (Ralph Fiennes), has a fear of falling. A self-made man, without professional qualifications, he has achieved domination in the town, but he is increasingly frightened of being displaced by the young. A woman, Hilde Wangel (Sarah Snook), appears from the mountains, claiming to have known Solness ten years previously, and telling him of a promise he made to her when she was thirteen.
Ralph Fiennes recent theatre credits include the role of Jack Tanner in George Bernard Shaw’s Man and Superman at the National Theatre and Prospero in Trevor Nunn’s production of The Tempest (Theatre Royal Haymarket)
Fiennes’ extensive film credits include The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Harry Potter films, Skyfall, Coriolanus, Wrath of the Titans, Clash of the Titans, The Duchess, The Reader, The Hurt Locker, In Bruges, The Constant Gardener, The Avengers and The English Patient.
