[The Master Builder] engages knotty spiritual questions about the mysterious workings of human fate and the ruthlessness of the artist?s ego.

Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

Closed 9 Jun 2013
Halvard Solness (an electrifying John Turturro) is a middle-aged architect whose passion and dedication borders on obsession. His marriage to his wife Aline (Katherine Borowitz) is frozen in the sorrow of his children's deaths that resulted from a fire that ultimately led him to profit.

When Solness is visited by Hilde (Wrenn Schmidt), a young woman from his past, an off-kilter love triangle is created in their home - Hilde lavishes adoration upon Solness which plays into the architect's desire and egoism, while his tragedy-haunted wife watches from the sidelines.
