Oedipus Rex


Fimonoi Stage presents the immortal world literature classic “Oedipus Rex” by ancient Greek playwright Sophocles, with English and French overtitles, June-September 2019, in Athinais Theatre.

After Oedipus was born, his father, King Laius of Thebes, learned from an oracle that he, Laius, was doomed to perish by the hand of his own son, and so ordered his wife Jocasta to kill the infant. But faith decided differently. Oedipus Rex is long considered the greatest Greek tragedy and hailed by Aristotle as the tragedy par excellence. It remains a model of what tragedy should be; deftly plotted and perfectly executed, it has a sympathetic protagonist, a crushing climax, inspirational poetry, and a wealth of meaningful themes. 

The play remains on the very short list of exceptionally and undeniably great world literature masterpieces that are taught all over the world.
