Ordway Music Theater
Conceived and directed by Lee Breuer; music by Bob Telson.
The Gospel at Colonus retells Sophocles' classical tragedy "Oedipus at Colonus" through the medium of modern gospel. Taking up the dramatic tension and emotional turmoil of classical tragedy and infusing it with inventive performances and an electrifying musical montage, this soul-stirring production features the heart-pounding sounds of the Blind Boys of Alabama, the Legendary Soul Stirrers, and The Steeles.
There are no pre or post show events scheduled at this time.
