The director, Eirik Stubø’s acclaimed double set of Sofokles dramas Oidipus and Antigone from 2017 will have new premiere on 3 February. Three exclusive performances on the Big Stage.

Oidipus is a tragedy from 427 BC with detective similar elements. King Oidipus tries to find the person who has murdered his representative on the throne. Soon the clues are put together and point to himself. In addition, the horrific prediction that Oidipus will kill his father and married his mother seems to have already come true. The tragedy gets its continuation in Antigone, the act of the daughter who turns to the power to give her brother a dignified funeral. Despite the threat of the death penalty, she refuses to fold. Here the law is set against morality and the king’s power against the gods.

Eirik Stubø has since he took over as theater director at Dramaten directed Och ge oss skuggorna of Lars Norén, Den goda viljan of Ingmar Bergman and En natt i den svenska sommaren of Erland Josephson.

All performances are texted to Swedish and English via an app in mobile or tablet.

Oidipus / Antigone on February 3, 5 and 6, Big Stage.
