Oedipus Tyrannus

OEDIPUS TYRANNUS was performed at the New Theatre, Cambridge, from 26-30 November 1912.

The actors’ text and translation sold to audiences was reprinted from the 1887 production. The music written in 1887 by Charles Villiers Stanford was also repeated, conducted by the composer (now Sir Charles) and another Greek play alumnus, Charles Wood (Director of Music at Gonville & Caius College).

The original watercolour costume designs survive in the archive, showing the rich colours of this production.
