Oedipus Rex / Król Edyp - Premiere
17 Oct | 21:15


Referring to the “new era” of Polish opera that began with Swinarski’s “Oedipus Rex” in 1962, Unsound and the National Stary Teatr present a completely new piece – inspired by Stravinsky’s opera based on the ancient drama of Sophocles and Jean Cocteau’s libretto. Directed by Jan Klata, the opera will be performed (in Latin) by Iwona Budner, Krzysztof Stawowy and Krzysztof Zawadzki as well as Polish musician and sound artist Robert Pienikowski. Known from his band Napszyklat as well as solo works, Pienikowski has long been associated with Unsound. Admission not included in festival pass.
