It can take a moment to get accustomed to any full-cast audio performance--the varied voices interact at breakneck speed, and pacing that works on the stage sometimes gives a listener pause. In this audio performance, however, once the adjustment is made, the experience is rewarding. Here, Ibsen's play is in full dramatic effect, with Hedda raving and her husband jauntily oblivious as the intrigue of a marriage with a past plays out in our ears. Some performers do amp up their deliveries and stand out starkly as a result, but the key players are effective in portraying the range of emotions explored. This production is a great introduction to classic stage performances and keeps the listener engaged to the surprise ending. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2020]
