There is no carefully interwoven plot such as tragedy presents, for example in Oedipus Rex.
We were in complete agreement in choosing Oedipus Rex as the subject.
An echo of this is to be found in the Oedipus Rex of Sophocles.
As we were too short both of time and funds to present Oedipus Rex in a stage setting, it was decided to give it in concert form.
But here, as in so many other contexts, we must turn for the classic example to the Oedipus Rex.
