About This Show

Soulful and stirring, this one-of-a-kind theatrical event reimagines the story of Oedipus as the centerpiece of a redemptive musical celebration. The blinded Oedipus arrives at the seaside town of Colonus, near Athens, seeking rest after a lifetime of tragedy. But he is pursued by enemies, including his own son. Based on Sophocles's Oedipus at Colonus from the 5th century BCE, this adaptation blends Greek myth with Black spiritual practice for a jubilant, life-affirming journey.
