Stravinsky – Oedipus rex
Stravinsky’s compelling “opera-oratorio” Oedipus rex is widely regarded as the pinnacle of his neoclassical period. Guided by celebrated stage and screen actor Sir Patrick Stewart and a traditional Greek chorus, the story of our doomed protagonist and the awful truth about his past are heightened by Stravinsky’s monumental and provocative score.
