About this event

Sakari Oramo conducts one of the great 20th-century dramatic showpieces – Stravinsky’s opera-oratorio Oedipus rex. Driving with powerful inevitability to its climax, this monumental work matches Sophocles’s tragedy in its visceral horror.

Please note this event contains an update to the concert from that in *BBC Proms 2014: The Official Guide*.
