Theater — Antigone

Antigone contradicts. Her brother died on the battlefield as a traitor. That is why King Creon refuses to pay him his last respects. But Antigone rebels—against the law, the new ruler, and in the end also against the citizens of Thebes. A woman's opinion does not count for much here. Creon threatens to bury her alive.
This Greek drama is a dialogue between the main characters and the chorus, between the citizens and their tragic heroines. After the success of “Onkel Wanja” in Swiss German, Antú Romero Nunes invites a Basel choir to the Schauspielhaus. Together with the company, they tell the myth of Antigone in Basel dialect for the first time. There will be English surtitles for each performance.
Tickets are CHF 30-70 for adults and CHF 10 for youths up to age 16 or students up to age 30.
