Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus: Oedipus

Epidaurus Festival
Date: Friday, 21 June 2019 21:00 - Saturday, 22 June 2019 21:00

Venue: Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus  |  City: Ligourio


 Directed by Robert Wilson

Co-production: ConversAzioni – Teatro Olimpico Vicenza – Pompeii Theatrum Mundi – Teatro Stabile di Napoli

The iconic story of Oedipus comes alive in Robert Wilson’s series of breathtaking, distinctive tableau vivant. The celebrated director follows Oedipus’ story chronologically, without faithfully adapting Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex, from the moment of Oedipus’ birth and his abandon ment as an infant to the moment

of his self-inflicted blinding, following the horrific revelations: from the first light of birth to the last light he sees before it all goes black. Two ‘witnesses,’ a man and a woman, spin his tale, the life and times of Oedipus, speaking across the centuries.
