Edvard Grieg initially did not think much of Peer Gynt, the social satire disguised as a fairy tale that his friend Hendrik Ibsen had written. And yet he turned the story of the egotistical Peer Gynt, a scamp who leaves a swath of destruction and broken hearts behind him, into a musical blockbuster and audience pleaser.
