Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Turnage’s operatic retelling of Oedipus the King, moved to present-day London, is based on Steven Berkoff’s adaptation of Sophocles' classic tragedy. It won prizes for best opera and best libretto and is a typical example of Turnage’s determinedly urban type of music: accessible, colourful, retaining an underlying lyricism with a powerful dramatic impact and emotional power.
