Synopsis

The theme of "The Blue Man" is what we inherit and what we pass on to the next generation. The story draws on a little known episode in the last summer of Grieg´s life in 1907. The composer found inspiration in the people round him, especially Percy Grainger. Despite increasing illness and mental instability he managed an extraordinary last mountain trip to the top of The Blue Man.

The song texts Spread throughout the range of Grieg´s songs (and generally forgotten behind the more popular settings of nature-poems) are a number of songs set to surprising texts that reflect a preoccupation with death of young women, with the allusion that the chance to come to fulfillment has been broken off. Grieg lost his only child. I have used these song-texts in the body of the play as a "chorus".
