Jocasta - A Musical Tragedy
Tickets for Jocasta - A Musical Tragedy at The Lowry
Louis Barabbas' epic new musical takes place in a murky world of political power games, media manipulation and familial betrayal set against the backdrop of a neglected city that has been left to starve. The story of Oedipus has been told many times, yet his mother Jocasta is always reduced to a supporting role, a narrative device rather than a force in her own right. It is time to reset the balance and focus on her part in one of the greatest tragedies of classical mythology. This event will be the first opportunity to hear songs from the musical and discuss the work with the creative team before a full scale dramatic production is embarked upon.
