Kolozsvári Állami Magyar Színház Ismeretterjesztő


The Radu Stanca National Theatre’s production is an adaptation of Sophocles’ Oedipus at Colonus and Oedipus Rex, capturing director Silviu Purcărete’s staging with the force of an almost cinematic approach , which blends reality with imagination, developing a poetics of excruciating detail. It is a painting of dismay, premonitions, and wretchedness, in the spirit of the great masters, a
contemporary interpretation of a legendary destiny.
