Ethics and law exist symbiotically. Without the law, ethics has no strength; without a solid moral guide, human justice simply ends up in its opposite. This is one of the fundamental messages of Sophocles’ Antigone, a timeless classic that still speaks to us with surprising topicality. The ancient tragedy will be the basis for this creation by two of the greatest contemporary Italian actors, Elena Bucci and Marco Sgrosso (Company Le Belle Bandiere), who will cover all the roles in Sophocles’ play. Bathed in the evocative light of the Ancient Port of Classe, their words will rediscover their ancient rhythmic depth through the sounds of Raffaele Bassetti and the original music of Dimitri Sillato, two of the Company’s historical collaborators.
