There are many comic sections in the play—one might argue that Nora’s “songbird” and “squirrel” acts, as well as her early flirtatious conversations with her husband, are especially humorous. Still, like many modern productions, A Doll’s House seems to fit the classical definition of neither comedy nor tragedy. Unusually for a traditional comedy, at the end there is a divorce, not a marriage, and the play implies that Dr. Rank could be dead as the final curtain falls. But this is not a traditional tragedy either, for the ending of A Doll’s House has no solid conclusion. The ending notably is left wide open: there is no brutal event, no catharsis, just ambiguity. This is a play that defies boundaries.
A Doll's House received its world premiere on 21 December 1879 at the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen, with Betty Hennings as Nora, Emil Poulsen as Torvald, and Peter Jerndorff as Dr. Rank.  Writing for the Norwegian newspaper Folkets Avis , the critic Erik Bøgh admired Ibsen's originality and technical mastery: "Not a single declamatory phrase, no high dramatics, no drop of blood, not even a tear."  Every performance of its run was sold out.  Another production opened at the Royal Theatre in Stockholm , on 8 January 1880, while productions in Christiania (with Johanne Juell as Nora and Arnoldus Reimers as Torvald) and Bergen followed shortly after. 
agreed! could have talked her into a less expensive doll, or maybe just one american girl doll, and let her learn to make the dresses ect., use “it” as a learning experience, and my children’s toys were never left the way you let your daughter do in your photos, when my kids went off to college, their toys were sold and all who bought over ebay raved how they all were in like new condition, something my mom taught me, and my kids were taught. do i like what american girl doll is doing, its all about money, no…. but you could have used the whole “thing” as a learning experience….
