SAPIENZA theatron: SOPHOCLES’ ANTIGONE

Saturday, April 14 – 6:30 pm
Odeion Hall, Museum of Classical Art (Humanities Building)
Piazzale Aldo Moro 5, 00185 Rome

On Saturday, April 14, students from the National Institute of Ancient Drama (INDA) will stage a performance - conceived both as a synthesis and a reinterpretation - of Sophocles’ classical tragedy, Antigone.

The performance, which has been organised as part of the Theatron – Ancient Theatre at Sapienza Programme, is conceived as a choral show that exalts the Syracusan School of the tragic chorus, in which experimentation and intense acting highlights the most significant events of the drama: the meeting between Antigone and Ismene, the competition between Antigone and Creon, the dialogues between these characters and the son of Haemon or the soothsayer Tiresias and the messenger’s tale. 

The play was produced by the company of first year students at the Accademia d’Arte del dramma Antico dell’Indaand directed by Emiliano Bronzino.

Free entrance as long as seats are available.
