Abstract—Henrik Johan Ibsen had varying degrees of cross-cultural influence in different fields. Around the May 4th Movement, many van ward playwrights and writers were deeply affected by him and their works all had an image of Ibsen, during which there was a boom in introducing Ibsen into China and impacted the whole Chinese society. Many Chinese dramas like Thunderstorm written by Cao Yu and romantic dramas by the founder of Chinese modern drama, Tian Han were inspired by Ibsen. Besides, Ibsen also influenced EugeneO'Neill, the father of American drama, who was once considered receiving the permanent inheritance, family-themed stories and hereditary guilty, from Ibsen by some critics. Ibsen's influence went far beyond, taking the famous Bangladeshi director Satyagit Ray as an example, he adapted the script and made a film in 1989 based on Ibsen's An Enemy of the People, which was recognized as a great work by public. In addition, in 2018, the overseas cruise of An Enemy of the People performed by the famous German troupe, Schaubuhne Berlin, which was founded in 1862, has inspired fans all over the world.

Index Terms—Henrik Ibsen, an enemy of the people, satyagit ray, schaubuhne Berlin.
