Harvard Glee Club performs Stravinsky's Oedipus Rex, presented by Emmanuel Music 

The Harvard Glee Club partners with the Orchestra and Chorus of Emmanuel Music to present Stravinsky's Oedipus Rex. An opera-oratorio based on Sophocles and with a libretto by Cocteau, the piece is a gripping musical adaptation of the mythological tragedy. The HGC is no stranger to Stravinsky's monumental work, having performed it previously alongside such musical luminaries as Leonard Bernstein and, nearly 80 years ago, in its American premiere.
