English National Opera: ThebansDistinguished playwright Frank McGuinness creates a compelling re-telling of Sophocles's timeless Theban tragedy for the English National Opera which gets is world premiere at the London Coliseum in May 2014. Focusing on the fate of Oedipus and his daughter Antigone, this earth shattering story, an important ENO commission, unites the playwright with prize-winning British composer Julian Anderson ("a composer to cherish", The Times) who has written his first opear with this piece. De Nederlandse Opera Artistic Director Pierre Audi makes his much-anticipated ENO debut with this production, a tale of murder and incest, political ambition, and love and loyalty which ends in catastrophe. "Thebans in three words: families are terrifying" - Frank McGuinness.
