The tragedy Oedipus by George Enescu premiered at the Grand Opera in Paris
13 March 1936
Oedipus is an opera in four acts by the Romanian composer George Enescu, based on the mythological tale of Oedipus, and set to a French libretto by Edmond Fleg.
This dramatic musical treatment of the Oedipus myth is unusual in that it attempts to cover the entire story of Oedipus’ life, from birth to death. Act III covers the story of Oedipus the King. Act IV overlaps in plot with Oedipus at Colonus, though with divergent psychological treatment of Oedipus’ final days compared to the original. It is generally considered to be Enescu’s masterpiece.
