Sophocles' Antigone was the first female heroine written for the stage. She was not afraid to show her strength, her pain, and her passion; all attributes that are deep at the heart of flamenco.
In ANTIGONA, Noche Flamenca transforms the classic play into a virtuoso flamenco masterpiece. Honoring the Greek tradition of sung poetry and musical accompaniment, Noche Flamenca's Artistic Director Martín Santangelo studied the poetry of Sophocles, then translated and re-wrote the text into lyrics. It was created in collaboration with his wife and principal dancer, Soledad Barrio, who plays the title role.
The themes in the work include catharsis, issues of dictatorship, repression, loss, the strength of family, and female empowerment; strong themes not only in Sophocles, but also in flamenco.
