Oedipus the King by Sophocles

Cyprus : Oedipus the King by Sophocles

International Festival of Ancient Greek Drama
THEATRO DENTRO – CYPRUS

Theatro Dentro participates at the Festival for its first time and presents Sophocles’ Oedipus the King, perhaps the most emblematic ancient drama of them all, the tragedy which examines the individual in respect of personal freedom, power, society and divine will.

The oracle at Delphi predicts that Thebes will be saved as soon as the person responsible for the death of King Laius is found and expelled from the city. So, Oedipus begins an investigation. The deeper he goes, the closer it brings him to the truth. Three stages, three Oedipuses in time. It damages them and declares the existence of death. Oedipus himself, who had saved Thebes from the scourge of the Sphinx, is now responsible for the moral pollution of the city. Truth becomes timeless, it transcends people’s lifetime, it overcomes death. Oedipus becomes one of us, and we become him.
