Anitra - female dancer/actor/singer

Anitra, is the daughter of a Bedouin Chief. She is a prized Arabian dancer. Appearing in Act 4, she pretends to worship Peer as the Prophet but is more interested in the jewels he carries. While Peer Gynt is singing and dancing to show her how young and vigorous he is, she rides away with his horse, moneybag and jewels. She is a strong and earthy character - alluring and elusive.

Female, aged 18 and over

In Act 1, Ingrid is the young country bride kidnapped by Peer. She is in hiding from her bridegroom – and, like Peer is seeking a different life from what has been ordained.

The Woman in Green - character role

In Act 2, the Woman in Green is the mischievous Troll Princess, the young daughter of the Mountain King. She and Peer Gynt seduce each other. She believes Peer's lies and agrees to marry him after the Mountain King offers her hand in marriage. Peer abandons her. She is amorous, boastful. Later in the Act she dances wildly and is delivered of a child. Like all trolls, there is a grotesque energy about her.
