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.
