Arcola Theatre


Directed by Jonathan Moore

Music by Mark-Anthony Turnage  |  Libretto by Steven Berkoff from his stage play of the same title, adapted by Mark-Anthony Turnage and Jonathan Moore

Greek is a riotous, contemporary retelling of the Oedipus myth, based on the verse play by Steven Berkoff (East, Decadence).

Mark-Anthony Turnage and Jonathan Moore’s groundbreaking and radical work sent shockwaves through the opera world when it premiered in 1988. The Sunday Times called it “riveting total theatre … a resounding, unanimous triumph”.

Now, on the thirtieth anniversary of his original staging, director Jonathan Moore brings this East End masterpiece home, in a brand new production for the Grimeborn Opera Festival.

“The most exciting new opera London has seen for years… Moore’s production is direct, spectacular, inescapable.” – Evening Standard on Jonathan Moore’s original production

Live music performed by a full band, sung in English

This production is made possible by the generous support of the Grimeborn Funders’ Circle.
