An excellent cast including Johan Reuter, John Tomlinson, Sarah Connolly and Sophie Bevan perform The Royal Opera’s first production of Enescu’s operatic masterpiece, directed by acclaimed Catalan company La Fura dels Baus.

Oedipe is destined to murder his father and marry his mother. His parents arrange for his murder but instead he is raised as a prince of Corinth. Discovering the prophecy, he flees Corinth - only unwittingly to kill his true father and marry his mother.

After 20 years the truth is discovered. Oedipe blinds himself and his wife/mother commits suicide. He wanders the wilderness. At a grove outside Athens he discovers his final resting place and disappears in a blaze of light.
