    BEIJING (ANA-MPA) -- Sophocles' "Antigone" will be performed here in the Chinese language by students of the renowned Beijing Academy of Drama, under the direction of noted theatrical director Theodore Terzopoulos.

    "Antigone" has been translated into Chinese by well-known Hellenist and academic Luo Niansheng, whose body of work includes translations of Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Aristophanes, Homer, Aesop and Lucian, amongst others.

    Terzopoulos has established a theatrical troupe at the Beijing Drama Academy that focuses on themes and techniques of ancient Greek drama, cooperation that dates to 1984, according to a press report here.

    The premiere of the 10-performance run of "Antigone" at the Beijing Drama Academy's new theatre was scheduled for Tuesday.
