Hydro sponsors "Lady from the Sea" play
The work, by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen, will be performed at the prestigious Almeida Theatre in London starting in May.
Hydro will sponsor the theater’s re-opening production, "Lady from the Sea", a play set in a small town in northern Norway.
The play, directed by Trevor Nunn with Natasha Richardson playing the title role, opens May 8.
Eivind Reiten, president and CEO of Norsk Hydro, says:
"It is a great pleasure to be associated with the Almeida, which has such a strong reputation both in the UK and internationally. And as Norway’s largest industrial company, it is exciting for us to be involved with such a high profile production of the work of one of our country’s best-loved playwrights."
Rick Haythornthwaite, chairman of the Almeida's Board of Trustees, says: "I am delighted to welcome Norsk Hydro on board as production sponsors of "Lady from the Sea", the inaugural production at our refurbished theatre."
"I cannot think of a partner better suited to support this fabulous play, at a time that is arguably the most important moment in our history."
