Edipo rey

The directors Alfredo Sanzol, Andrés Lima and Miguel del Arco have joined forces on a project which looks at classical texts with contemporary eyes: Teatro de la Ciudad.
Max Award 2016 to the Best Private Production on Scenics Arts

Their first project is a reworking of Èdip rei [Oedipus Rex], Medea and Antígona [Antigone]. The three performances that come to the Lliure in marathon format, with Juan Antonio Lumbreras, Aitana Sánchez-Gijón, Carmen Machi and Manuela Paso in the leading roles.

The need to find out the truth, the impossibility of absolute control over one's destiny and the search for one's origins make up the story of a man who while he is investigating a crime, discovers that he is his father's murderer and his mother's lover, and questions the limits and possibilities of human understanding.

“Let my destiny take its course. Wherever I go.
Oedipus discovers that his greatness is built on sand. His story is that of a man who was everything and was really less than nothing. The story of a man who destroyed himself to save the city. The story of a man who decides not to see the light again when he discovers the truth.
