About this show

Forces of redemption and reconciliation clash in Sophocles' timeless myth, as the human instinct for love struggles to overcome the human instinct for violence, enmity, and revenge. When a civil war leaves rebels bloody and unburied on the battlefield, Antigone--daughter of the cursed house of Oedipus--must defy her uncle the king, by burying her fallen brother, leader of the defeated faction. Can one young girl, willing to sacrifice everything, face down the power of a state determined to kill her if she does not obey its rigid laws? Francois Rochaix directs.
