NOVEMBER 5 - 11, 1963
IN THE
FREDERIC WOOD THEATRE
Programme Note
The ANTIGONE, probably written in 441 B.C., seems to have been as highly
regarded by Sophocles' contemporaries as it is now, since the play was reputedly
the cause of his appointment as one of the ten generals of Athens. In fifth-century
Greece, to be a great artist was to be considered a great citizen.
The central conflict between Antigone and Creon is a clear but not a simple one.
It involves not only divine vs. human law, but the individual vs. the state, moral
imperative vs. political necessity, and even romantic vs. realist. Nor is Sophocles'
resolution of that conflict a pat one. To consider Antigone "right" is not to
judge Creon merely "wrong". His position, after all, is quite justifiable on numerous grounds. As so often in Greek tragedy, however, the special circumstances
and the particular character of the man unite to destroy him. But because he can
learn and suffer, he emerges from his trial truly a man.
Throughout the unfolding catastrophe the Chorus shows us how we should view
what is happening before our eyes. At first wary of the concrete power of authority, they move finally to a statement of the bitter lesson Creon has so painfully
learned: r\c i.       • .l
Ut happiness the crown
And chiefest part
Is wisdom, and to hold
The gods in awe.
This is the law
That, seeing the stricken heart
Of pride brought down,
We learn when we are old.
