The Show

An important ENO commission, Thebans unites prize winning British Composer Julian Anderson and his librettist, the distinguished playwriter Frank McGuinness. This compelling re-telling of Sophocles' timeless Theban tragedies focuses on the fate of Oedipus adn his daughter Antigone. Murder and incest, political ambition, love and loyalty, hatred and revenge drive everyone on a collision course which can only lead to catastrophe.

The Story

Anderson "A Composer to cherish" (The Times) is recognised for his fresh melodic gifts, vivid orchestration and rhythmic drive, all of which he brings to Thebans, his first opera. Among his recent orchestral showpieces is The Discovery Of Heaven (2013 South Bank Sky Arts Award), while harmony was premiered at the opening night of the 2013 proms season. A playwrighter of international repute, McGuiness is also acclaimed for his vivid translations of Ibsen, Strindberg and Sophocles. His Oedipus, based on the Theban tragedy, was staged by The National Theatre in 2008.
