About IbsenStage

IbsenStage is a database of all known performances of Ibsen's plays worldwide. It is a quantitative research tool that contains data on more than 20,000 productions of Ibsen's plays and provides an accessible online resource for researching the performances. IbsenStage is continously updated by the Centre for Ibsen studies at the University of Oslo, and continues to grow as historical and contemporary data are entered into the database.

IbsenStage has been developed in cooperation with AusStage, the national database of performative art in Australia, and The National Library of Norway.
