Authors: Constantinides, Dinos
Keywords: LRC109e
Issue Date: 1994
Abstract: The composer began work on his three-act opera Antigone, based on the play by Sophocles, twenty years ago and completed it in 1989. It was premiered in 1993 by the Baton Rouge Opera. The opera is performed in three acts and follows the original story closely. The first act offers background information on the fight to the death between Antigone’s two brothers over the kingship of Thebes and Antigone’s plan to bury her brother Polyneices. The burial of her brother has been forbidden by the new king, her uncle Creon. The second act focuses on Antigone’s confrontation with Creon and the conflict between Creon and his son, Haimon. The final act centers on Creon’s realization that he has wronged Antigone and the tragic consequences of his rash actions. These selections include various instrumental arrangements derived from the opera Antigone.
