In the park of Art School Luka Sorkočević last night I watched Oedipus the King by Sophocles. Due to its oral tradition there are many different versions of the legend of Oedipus. Significant variations on the legend of Oedipus are mentioned in fragments by several ancient Greek poets including Homer, Hesiod, Pindar, Aeschylus and Euripides. The most popular version of the legend comes from the set of Sophocles. Horrible tragedy that can't leave anyone indifferent. I am not a critic, my opinion is not professional, but as a regular spectator I can say that I experienced this play so deep like I was a part of the story. Such a feeling you can have only if you are in front of  good actors. Last night they carried us through the story like through the live. All praise to the actors.

Dark scene, dark story!
