About The Lady from the Sea:

Ellida, the lighthouse-keeper’s daughter, is trapped in her marriage and longs for the sea. When a former lover returns from years of absence, she is forced to decide between freedom and the new life she has made for herself. Ibsen’s emotional drama explores the themes of duty and self-determination.
