Peer Gynt 是挪威现实主义剧作家Henrik Johan Ibsen（易卜生）的一部作品，在挪威是广为流传的。关键是“扑朔迷离的梦幻境界和形象。
According to Klaus Van Den Berg – “is a stylistic minefield: its origins are romantic, but the play also anticipates the fragmentations of emerging modernism. Chronicling Peer’s journey from the Norwegian mountains to the North African desert, the cinematic script blends poetry with social satire and realistic scenes with surreal ones. The irony of isolated individuals in a mass society infuses Ibsen’s tale of two seemingly incompatible lovers—the deeply committed Solveig and the superficial Peer, who is more a surface for projections than a coherent character.”

Peer Gynt Suites是指一些列incidental music。这些组曲是Edvard Grieg受Ibsen邀请为他的剧作Peer Gynt所写的音乐。他共做了两套组曲（各4首）。（Later, in 1888 and 1891, Grieg extracted eight movements to make two four-movement suites: Suite No. 1, Op. 46, and Suite No. 2, Op. 55.）
