Here is the story associated with this piece of music.
In this play, Peer falls in love with a girl but is not allowed to marry her. After being forced to leave home for being untrustworthy, Peer finds himself in the Hall of the Mountain King where he is captured by trolls. He upsets the King of the Trolls when he refuses to marry the King's daughter and become a troll. Peer Gynt tries to escape but is chased by the trolls and runs into the troll King but eventually gets away.

Some fantastic videos of skills being learnt and short piece coming together. Great job Willow Class.
