The Burial at Thebes is an operatic creation composed by Dominique LEGENDRE, on a libretto from Seamus HEANEY, musical director Peter MANNING and Stage director & designer Derek WALCOTT. Presented as a world premiere at SHAKESPEARE’S GLOBE, London, in October 2008.
“Green’s Creon was fitfully baleful, and together with Andy Morton
as Haemon (Creon’s son) raised the temperature
with a convincing portrayal of father-son rivalry.
Peter Reed, Opera, December 2008
“King Creon, played by Brian Green appeared on the stage. His performance was
one of the finest of the day, nuanced with emotion, clear in his diction
and deft in his handling a large amount of text in his aria.
The music was a good, quick tempo to keep the pace propelled.”
Chip Mickael, Interchanging idioms, October 2008
