Nora or A Doll’s House is one of the most famous and most often performed plays by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. It caused an outrageous scandal when it was first performed at the Royal Danish Theatre in Copenhagen in 1879. With it, the playwright critically raised the issue of the patriarchal model of a bourgeois family and articulated a woman’s right to choose to shake off her submissive role in marriage. The focus of his interest is Nora’s inner growth, associated with her rebellion against the social norms that prevent her from acting according to her own will, judgement and conscience. Nora, in her own way, is still present today in many texts dealing with power relations between man and woman, because she was the first female heroine in the history of European literature and theatre to demand equality between the sexes
