"In the Hall of the Mountain King" is a piece of orchestral music composed for the sixth scene of act 2 in Henrik Ibsen's 1867 play Peer Gynt. It was originally part of Opus 23 but was later extracted as the final piece of Peer Gynt, Suite No. 1, Op. 46. Its easily recognizable theme has helped it attain iconic status in popular culture, where it has been arranged by many artists, including for the piano.

Borrow a copy of the sheet music from the O'Connor Music Studio.  I have this arranged for piano, duet, 2-piano, simplified...
