Scenes were so short and the staging seems so difficult in reading that I'm very curious to see it pulled off.
Peer Gynt Film

This at Amazon


Adapted for television


I have not watched any of these. I have only seen it staged once. This was a small semi-professional production; not top notch costumes or props, local small theater actors, and recorded music not an orchestra. This was balanced out by the advantages of an intimate theater. It was long as I recall, but not overly so. My recollection is about 4+ hours with a couple of intermissions.

Nice comments. I am still adsorbing all of that.
