This studio recording of Par Isberg's ballet, created specially for television, is based on a romantic adventure story by the great nineteenth-century Swedish writer Selma Lagerlof. The original score was composed by Jan Sandstrom and is performed here by the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Jonas Dominique. With lavish period sets and costumes designed by Bo-Ruben Hedwall, this large-cast ballet tells a gothic tale reminiscent of Beauty and the Beast.

In the late 1880s, Selma Lagerlof's family were forced to move from Marbacka, the house she had lived in during her childhood. This even had a profound influence on her life and writing and is one of the sources of inspiration for The Tale of a Manor.
