'I have defeated Destiny! I have defeated the Gods.' The myth of Oedipus is almost as old as Western civilisation, and in George Enescu’s operatic version the story of a great king doomed from birth by a relentless Fate is both timeless and shatteringly urgent.
When the Royal Opera staged it in 2016, critics hailed it as 'spellbinding'; for this performance Vladimir Jurowski has assembled a fine cast that includes Sir Willard White, Paul Gay, Dame Felicity Palmer and Ruxandra Donose plus two of Romania’s leading choirs. As we continue to explore the themes of the Belief and Beyond Belief festival, Enescu’s powerful drama asks questions that cannot be ignored.
