Theatre, 1947

The Dutchman

Bergman's radio play was the world premiere of Strindberg's dramatic piece from 1902.

About the production

The majority of the reviews focussed on Strindberg, however Bergman was praised for having placed the dream state and reality side by side. 

Bergman recorded a second version in 1953. No recordings have been preserved.
