About event

Miscellaneous speak of King Oedipus. Often remember the so-called Oedipus complex, about which everyone seems to have heard, but few understand its true essence.

Guides in museums with aspiration stop near the marble images of the legendary king of ancient Greek Thebes. And some of the modern avant-garde directors do not miss the chance to enjoy not even a legend from the 5th century BC, but simply rumors related to the history of Oedipus ... Well, indeed: it was not by chance that that era was considered the golden age of civilization ...

But ... What was he like - Oedipus? After all, the king - this is the second, and firstly - all the same - a man. To which all human is inherent: both care, and love, and in general passions ...

Therefore, his own understanding of the personality that, through trials and sufferings, got into Eternity, in order to stay there as a Legend, is perhaps the most famous and most interesting director of today's national theater, Honored Art Worker and laureate of the Shevchenko National Prize of Ukraine Dmitry Bogomazov. And in the lead role in this performance based on the classic work of Sophocles, viewers will see their long-time favorite - Honored Artist of Ukraine Yakov Kucherevsky.
