Le Gendre adapting Heaney adapting Sophocles at The Globe

The Telegraph arts bulletin included this:

The Burial at Thebes

Derek Walcott directs Dominique Le Gendre’s operatic adaptation of Seamus Heaney’s translation of Aeschylus’ play. Shakespeare’s Globe, London SE1 (020 7740 9919), Sat and Sun.

I have a vague feeling that Burial at Thebes is a a translation of Antigone, and an even vaguer notion that it was not Aeschylus who wrote Antigone.

But I hope it keeps fine for the production. I haven’t yet seen a production in The Globe, but if and when I do, I shall hope to see Shakespeare…
