About

Dance Drama for Television by Pär Isberg and Bengt Wennehorst, based on the novel by Selma Lagerlöf.

This studio recording of Pär Isberg’s ballet, created specially for television, is danced by the Royal Swedish Ballet. The work is based on a romantic adventure story by the great nineteenth-century Swedish writer Selma Lagerlöf. An original score has been composed by Jan Sandström and it is performed by the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Jonas Dominique.

With lavish period sets and costumes, designed by Bo-Ruben Hedwall, this large cast ballet, starring Johanna Björnson and Martin Leander, tells a gothic tale reminiscent of Beauty and the Beast.

At the end of the 1880s, Selma Lagerlöf’s family had to move from Mårbacka, the house where she had lived during her childhood. This event had a profound influence on her life and writing, and is one of the sources of inspiration for The Tale of a Manor.
