New York City
A loving mother or cruel tyrant? Ethiopian-born monster, SPHINX, with a lioness’ might, a woman’s wisdom, a serpent’s cunning and transcendent wings, terrorizes the city under her charge, until she meets her match in Oedipus. Blind to his own motivation, is he a saviour or a conqueror? What happens when the two enemies connect in a deathly embrace? An emerging voice of “indie” opera, Yoav Gal teams up with macabre playwright Pete McCabe as lyricist, to create a beautiful and violent opera. Directed by Ronit Muszkatblit, and performed by Dana Muszkatblit, Yegor Shevtsov and Nadav Lev.
