Description:
The legends surrounding the royal house of Thebes inspired Sophocles (496-406 BC) to create a powerful trilogy about mankind's struggle against fate. 'King Oedipus' tells of a man who brings pestilence to Thebes for crimes he does not realize he has committed and who then inflicts a brutal punishment upon himself. With profound insights into the human condition, it is a devastating portrayal of a ruler brought down by his own oath. 'Oedipus at Colonus' provides a fitting conclusion to the life of the aged and blinded king, while 'Antigone' depicts the fall of the next generation, through the conflict between a young woman rules by her conscience and a king too confident of his own authority.
