SLCene Suggests: Sophocles’ Antigone at Red Butte Garden

by on September 21, 2012

SOPHOCLES’ ANTIGONE, RED BUTTE GARDEN, Saturday-Sunday, 9 a.m., $15/$10 for Red Butte Garden members

Let me first relay my appreciation that this presentation of the Classical Greek Theatre Festival occurs at 9 a.m., not the break of dawn as those Greeks would have done in the old days. This year’s production is Sophocles’ Antigone, a play that has remained popular thanks to an action-filled plot, complex characters, politically and philosophically intriguing ideas and its look at 5th century Athens. This production by Westminster College is directed by Larry West, includes original choreography by Darlene Casanova and a recent American translation by Marianne McDonald. The production also runs next weekend on Saturday and Sunday in the Red Butte Garden amphitheater.
