In the third part of Sophocles' classical tragedy, “Oedipus at Colonus”, Oedipus is an old repentant man burdened by an ill-fated life. The unthinkable has occurred multiple times. As an infant, prophecy proclaimed he would be a killer of his father and husband of his mother. His parents abandoned him out of fear. Later in life he killed an unknown man on a road, who turned out to be his father and King of Thebes. Time passes he marries a woman, the Queen of Thebes, and has children. It was discovered that his wife was in fact his mother. She hung herself when she learned the devastating news. Oedipus gouged his eyes out at the sight of his dead mother, and roamed about aimlessly for years. From August 5 -11, 2010, at Minnesota Orchestra Hall, an all star cast including The Blind Boys of Alabama, The Legendary Soul Stirrers and The Steeles, will tell the story of Oedipus seeking forgiveness and redemption in his death in The Gospel at Colonus, by Lee Breuer and Bob Telson. Now imagine this intense drama as a gospel musical set in a Black Pentecostal church.
