Operatic Witch Trial

Anne Pedersdotter is married to the priest, Absalon Beyer, who is forty years her senior. The priest´s son from his first marriage, Martin, returns home having completed his studies to enter the priesthood. Merete Beyer, Absalon´s eighty-year-old mother, will not accept that her son has married such a young woman. This short synopsis is the framework of Edvard Fliflet Bræin´s opera “Anne Pedersdotter”, a work based on the play of the same title by Hans Wiers-Jensen from 1908. This play has as its basis the most famous witch trial in Norway, namely the burning of Anne Pedersdotter in Bergen in 1590.
