Join Opera House Arts for the final Staged Reading of the year.

Antigone has lost two brothers but by law can only bury one. She takes a stand for her beliefs, pitting morality against patriotism, and in doing so starts a series of events that threaten the new-found national peace. It’s one of the most famous myths of all, told and re-told for more than two thousand years, but what use is a cautionary tale if no one heeds it?

World-renowned poet and MacArthur Genius Anne Carson has a biting and thrilling free translation that brings Antigone to new light and casts unexpected shadows on issues of loyalty and family.
