Storyboard Text

  • A fever-demon wastes the town...So, Oedipus, you most respected king, we plead with you to find us a cure
  • Speak, Elder, you are the senior here. Say what this pleading means, what frightens you, what you beseech.
  • And timely too, for look, they're signaling that Creon comes.
  • But when he comes- the instant he arrives- whatsoever he shall tell me from the god, that to the hilt I'll do- or I am damned. 
  • The Prince Apollo openly enjoins on us to sever from the body politic a monstrous growth that battens there: stop feeding that which festers
  • A murdered man. And now clearly is required the just blood of his assassins. 
  • So I've heard... A man I never saw.
  • Laius, sire. Him we had as king in days before you ruled. 
  • For who knows, tomorrow this selfsame murdered may turn his bloody hands on me. The cause of Laius therefore is my own.
  • Children, rise. The King has pledged us all our pleas and we have heard Apollo's voice. Oh, may he bring salvation in his hands and deal a death to all diseases.
