A Literary and Symphonic Choral Evening


Without regard for her own life, Antigone defies her uncle Creon, the ruler of Thebes. On pain of death, all are forbidden from burying her brother Polynices, who had attacked the city. Antigone wants to give her brother a dignified burial, and in doing so, shakes the state’s very foundations.
