The legends surrounding the royal house of Thebes inspired by Sophocles to create a powerful trilogy of humanity’s struggle against fateROI OEDIPE tells the story of a man who brings plague to Thebes for the crimes he is not aware that he committed, and then inflicts brutal punishment on himself.It’s a devastating portrait effect of a rule brought back by his oath.OEDIPE TO COLONUS provides an adequate conclusion to the life of the elderly and blind king, while ANTIGONE represents the fall of the next generation through the conflict between a young woman governed by her conscience and a king too confident in her own authority.
