Why Go: To see the ancient Greek tragedy by Sophocles

This ancient Athenian tragedy that many regard as Sophocles’ masterpiece is presented by Stavros Tsakiris who adopts the style of narrative theatre. The cast will narrate a parable on a stage that is virtually empty. The characters are conceived as apparitions of the dying Oedipus. Minos Matsas’ music will serve as a parallel text to be recited by the cast, lending to the performance an air of epic and lyric poetry. The title role is portrayed by the great Kostas Kazakos and performed at the Odeon Herodes Atticus in Athens.
