Sacchini: Oedipe à Colone

François Loup, Nathalie Paulin, Robert Getchell, Tony Boutté & Kirsten Blaise

Opera Lafayette Orchestra and Chorus, Ryan Brown

Based on Sophocles’ tragedy Oedipus at Colonus, the second play in a trilogy that is one of the glories of Greek literature, Sacchini’s opera is notable for both its high drama and tender, moving lyricism. It was championed by Berlioz who considered it to be an inspired and even sublime work.
