  • [01] 'Gospel at Colonus' in Athens

    The famous gospel version of Sophocles' tragedy "Oedipus at Colonus", entitled "Gospel at Colonus", will be staged on Saturday at the Herod Atticus Odeon, at the foot of the Acropolis, within the framework of this year's Athens Festival.

    The show was created in New York City in 1985 by Lee Breuer, the experimental-theatre director, and composer Bob Telson, founders of the troupe called Mabou Mines.

    Breuer told a press conference in Athens on Wednesday that in the 'Gospel at Colonus' "a link is established between paganism and Christianity, resulting in the redemption of the tortured Oedipus by a happy death."

    Taking part in the cast are The Blind Boys of Alabama, The Legendary Soul Stirrers and The Abyssinian Baptist Church in New York City.

    The performance is taking place in cooperation with American-Hellenic Arts Centre and under the auspices of the US embassy.
