Tradition
Builds
the
Future

FA L L 2 0 1 5

In our 137th season, we continue to showcase traditional performances
alongside contemporary artists for an offering that is unlike anything
available in the Midwest. UMS grew from a group of local members of the
University and townspeople in the 1870s who gathered together for the
study of Handel’s Messiah. Led by Professor Henry Simmons Frieze and
conducted by Professor Calvin Cady, the group assumed the name The
Choral Union. Many Choral Union members were also affiliated with the
University, and the University Musical Society was established soon after in
December 1880.
Since that first season, UMS has expanded greatly and now presents the
very best from a wide spectrum of the performing arts: internationally
renowned recitalists and orchestras, dance and chamber ensembles, jazz
and global music performers, and contemporary stagework and classical
theater. Through educational programming, the commissioning of new
works, youth programs, artist residencies, and collaborative projects, we
continue to strengthen our reputation for artistic distinction and innovation.

“The arts have made a significant difference in my life and
my daughter’s life. I want every U-M student to have the
opportunity to experience the impact of the performing arts
at UMS. This is why I am offering every first and second year
student one free ticket — Bert’s Ticket — to introduce them to
a cultural experience at Michigan.”

DAL L AS AN D SH ARON DORT
“It could almost be said that we chose to move to Ann Arbor
post-career because of UMS. Who wouldn’t want to live in a
city that can attract such talent, and fill a 3,500-seat hall with
so many enthusiastic audiences? Now, we enjoy each season
all the more because, as donors, we’re an active part of UMS.
What a privilege!”

“As students, we benefited from low-cost student tickets,
fostering a lifelong love of the performing arts. Our donation
will help to ensure that affordable tickets will be available to

THE UNANSWERED QUESTION —
HOW TO GET TO THE DARK SOUL OF ANTIGONE
by Ivo van Hove
Antigone, by Sophokles, tells the
ancient story of one of Oidipous’s
daughters, who refuses to follow the
orders of her uncle Kreon, the new
Head of State.
Kreon has ordained that Antigone’s
brother Polyneikes, who, along with
their brother Eteokles has just died in
a cruel civil war, should not be allowed
a burial because he is a traitor.
A war of words begins with short
but razor-sharp scenes between
Antigone and Kreon: an exhaustive,
long, bitter but also passionate
discourse of opposing views on how to
treat the dead, especially when they
are deemed an enemy of the state.
Antigone states: “I am someone
born to share in love not hatred.”
Kreon counters: “If a man puts family
or friend ahead of fatherland I count
him absolutely good for nothing.”
Antigone is driven by an emotional
urge to bury her brother. Kreon places
good citizenship above all else.
To understand Antigone’s deeds,
we need to return to Sophokles’s
Oidipous at Kolonos, in which
Antigone and her sister Ismene take
care of their aging father, who has
been exiled from Thebes. His sons are
to alternately rule Thebes every other
year but after his inaugural year
Eteokles refuses to relinquish the
throne to Polyneikes.
A brutal war between the brothers
ensues. For the sisters the situation
is desperate: their mother killed
herself, their father is dying and their
brothers kill each other. Antigone
is in deep mourning. Caught in this
6

cruel tragedy, she can’t see or enjoy
beauty and has no sense of a future.
She follows her impulse to take care
of her brother’s body. For her, all
human beings are equal and, even
if Polyneikes was wrong, the dead
should be respected.
The dilemma of dealing with
Polyneikes’s body became a terrifying
reality recently when Malaysia
Airlines Flight 17 was shot down over
a Ukrainian war zone.
The dead were left in an open field,
rotting in the burning sun for over a
week. The whole world saw this as an
act of barbarity. Once the bodies were
recovered and brought to the
Netherlands for identification,
the Dutch government arranged a
convoy of hearses in a 100km burial
procession. This was a civilized and
humane response, a mark of respect
to the victims.
Antigone goes on a long, solitary
road towards death. Scene by scene
she cuts herself loose: from her sister,
who won’t help with their brother’s
burial; from Polyneikes; from the
love of her fiancé Haimon; from
Kreon’s policy; and, as an inevitable
consequence, from society. “I’m a
strange new kind of ‘inbetween thing’
aren’t I/not at home with the dead nor
with the living,” she concludes.
In a horrifying, magical scene she
sees herself in her brother’s tomb,
which in her mind becomes a bridal
chamber. She imagines an emotional
reunion with her father, mother, and
brother. Kreon imprisons her in a
cave, buried alive “with a bit of food . . .

no doubt if she prays hard the gods of
death will save her life.” But Antigone
has nothing and nobody to live for.
She can’t transform her grief into
something positive. Her journey leads
to self-destruction. There is nothing
left other than to stage her own death,
execute the ultimate control. Her life
becomes meaningful by ending it.
And what about Kreon? The play
starts the day after a cruel civil war
with many casualties, provoked by
Polyneikes and Eteokles. Also, Kreon’s
eldest son has just died. It is clear that
the old city of Thebes, a society based
on blood ties, has been disastrous
and destabilizing. But instead of
mourning, Kreon does something
positive to stop the atrocities; he tries
to create structure, a society based on
clear laws, on citizenship. He wants
the citizens of Thebes to live in safety.
Before becoming king, Kreon was
involved in the military operations
of Thebes. Now he wants to run the
city as if it is an army. His strategic
plan is based on the rule, “you are with
us or against us.” Those who disobey
should be punished. He thinks purely
in logical and hierarchical terms. As
a politician he has a new vision but
old methods, successful in an army
but which fall short in governing a
society.
Kreon is his own worst enemy. He
sees the value of citizenship but not
of individual citizens. He wants to be
the enlightened king of Thebes but
ends a broken man, alone in the world
with no public position and no family.
Both Antigone and Kreon are
unable to develop meaningful
leadership. A leader must value the
wellbeing of his city or country as well
as religious laws. A real democracy

should allow its citizens to fulfill
religious duties towards family
without colliding with the laws of
society.
What makes Antigone a drama of
epic scale is the Chorus, who comprise
senior advisers to the king, while also
representing the people of Thebes.
They cover the whole intellectual
and emotional scope of the main
characters in the play. The Chorus
listens to what Kreon, Antigone,
and others tell them and adapt their
point of view accordingly. They are
empathic, they don’t hide when they
are moved or horrified. They are
the way people should be. They can
be critical, neutral, mad, or sad. But
one thing they are not: hypocrites.
Their journey starts with complete
support for the new political views of
Kreon. When Antigone enters, they
immediately empathize, “o you poor
awful child of poor awful Oidipous.”
After the intense discourse between
Antigone and Kreon, and later Ismene,
the Chorus starts to broaden their
picture and awareness.
They tell Kreon the gods are
responsible for this carnage. They
judge Antigone harshly, claiming
she disrespected the gods and the
laws of Thebes. She is “too extreme.”
They turn their back on her. But, as
they are only human, unrest lingers.
They remind Kreon that he too is
only human and the gods could turn
against him.
When Teiresias, the prophet of
Thebes, enters, they stay silent. They
know he only comes when there is
a real problem and that he always
speaks the truth. And, what the
Chorus daren’t say or even think, he
says to Kreon: “The cause is you.” After
7

the imprisonment of Antigone, and
Teiresias’s warning, they come to a
new conclusion: “take advice… set the
girl free bury the boy.”
But the catastrophes are
unstoppable and Kreon’s efforts to
turn around his punishments come
too late. By the end of the play his
wife, Eurydike, and two sons are dead.
Like Antigone, Kreon is “alone on
his insides.” He has been driven by a
sincere ambition to turn Thebes, his
beloved city, into a better place and
has failed. In every scene he is given
the chance to adjust his law but he
can’t. His inflexibility leads to his
downfall.
Antigone develops from a play
about a brutal war into a play about
politics and public policies and ends
as a play about the helplessness of
humans, lost in the cosmos. It is a play
about survival: not the survival of an
individual or a family, but of a whole
society, perhaps even the world. The
play is ambivalent and dark, modern
and mythical, leaving one with more
questions than answers.

W H AT A N C I E N T G R E E K T H E AT R E G O E R S K N E W
by Edith Hall
When Sophokles’s Antigone
premiered, probably in the late
440s BC, the audience consisted of
Athenian citizens and their allies
from across the Greek-speaking
world. The drama competitions took
place at a religious festival in Athens
coinciding with the start of the sailing
season in April. Some guests arrived
after long voyages from south Italy
or the Black Sea. Their expectations
were high. Sophokles was a popular
member of the political class, who
had already held high office as
treasurer in the Athenian democracy.
He enjoyed a reputation for personal
integrity, and for portraying
characters struggling to do their
best in impossible moral situations,
expressing themselves in lovely songs
and hard-hitting, unadorned rhetoric.
The audience knew from their
epic poems that any play about the
children of Oidipous, tyrant of Thebes,
would be likely to involve a civil war.
Oidipous’ two sons by his mother/wife
Jokasta had fought and died over the
crown of Thebes in the most famous
civil war known to legend. But the
spectators will have known little
more than this about the way the
plot would evolve. They would have
had no suspicion that Antigone was
about to become an instant classic,
to be performed all over the Greekand Latin-speaking world until the
advent of Christianity, nor that
after its rediscovery in the European
Renaissance, it would re-enter the
repertoire of live theater to become
one of the most influential plays in
the history of the planet.

The walled Theban citadel was
situated in the hot, flat plains of
Boeotia, remote from the sea, and
just near enough to the Athenians
– about 18 hours’ walk – to be a real
psychological presence even across
the Cithaeron mountain range.
Many Athenians will themselves
have travelled across what, in the
tragedy, become the carnage-strewn
Boeotian plains immediately outside
the seven gates of Thebes, from
which birds of prey bring stinking
parts of Polyneikes’s cadaver to drop
on the city’s altars. The embattled
community within the walls of the
Thebes of Antigone is strikingly
closed and inward-looking. According
to the democratic ancient Athenian
mindset shared by the majority of
Sophokles’s spectators, a mindset
which prized the principles of debate,
openness to outside influence, and
political accountability, the despotic
Theban monarchy of tragedy will
have seemed the very opposite of
an ideal constitution. Moreover, the
Thebans had in living memory plotted
to betray their fellow Greeks to the
Persians. They were the most loathed
of Athenian enemies. Sophokles’s
mythical Thebes fits this historical
profile, being prone to the secrets,
incestuous relationships, dogmatism,
grudges, and internal power struggles
that develop within any closed and
unaccountable ruling class.
When Kreon abruptly became ruler
of Thebes, he did not call a council
or citizen assembly, as an elected
Athenian magistrate would have
been legally obliged, but contravened
9

one of the most ancient taboos in
Greek thought by banning the burial
of someone dead. The imperative of
funeral rites applied to the cadavers
of those who had fallen in warfare.
The accepted “unwritten laws”
common to all Greeks dictated that
soldiers’ corpses be handed over
for burial. Moreover, the absolute,
unconditional duty to bury a family
member devolved on the senior
member of the nuclear family left
alive; Antigone, who regards herself
as an autonomous moral agent,
therefore has no choice but to bury
Polyneikes. The distortion of social
values in Thebes even prevents
her from performing the specific
ritual tasks of washing, anointing,
dressing, and singing laments
over the corpse, which were Greek
women’s most sacred duty. Antigone
is instead forced into intervening in
the public sphere when her menfolk
fail to perform their gender-specific
leadership duties, which should
include protecting dependent women.
In ancient Greece, women’s
political, legal, and economic
rights were few. Every woman was
supervised by a male representative
or “guardian” throughout her life.
In the absence of a father, brother,
or husband – the situation in which
Antigone and Ismene have just so
tragically found themselves – the
man who became a woman’s legal
guardian was none other than her
maternal uncle. The audience will
have been keenly aware that Kreon,
as her maternal uncle, has suddenly
acquired domestic as well as political
power over Antigone. Sophokles’s
(predominantly male) spectators may
have felt much more sympathy with
10

Kreon’s exasperation at Antigone’s
defiance than we do. The bitter,
sexualized insults he throws at her
are those of a man in loco parentis,
as well as a father concerned about
the temperament of the bride his
son has chosen and about potential
insurgency in the city of which he has
suddenly found himself commander.
Some spectators will also
have responded to the tragedy’s
exploration of ethical and political
theory. Thinkers contemporary with
Sophokles, especially the philosopher
Protagoras, had developed innovative
political theories to match the needs
of the new Athenian democracy, and
thought hard about the mechanisms
that allow humans to live together,
achieve consensus, and cooperate.
Some of Protagoras’s ideas are
expressed in Haimon’s eloquent and
levelheaded speech to his father
about flexibility and compromise.
According to Plato, Protagoras argued
that the ability to live together in a
democratic community required the
virtues of self-control and sense of
justice which Kreon is so palpably
lacking. His edict was passed
autocratically, and his domineering
attitude towards the views of others
renders the outcome of his reign, and
of the play, inevitable.
What makes Antigone so
astonishing, especially when it is
remembered that it was written by a
male in an ancient patriarchy, is that
Kreon is tested by the initiative of a
younger female relative. Antigone
is mysterious, arrogant, deliberately
inflammatory, inflexible, and she is
shown by the play to have been right
in challenging a leader not willing to
incorporate the most basic human

needs in his policy: the right of each
individual to be buried and mourned.
No wonder the Athenians went on
to re-elect Sophokles to high office
again.

Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg
— two separate venues, the Grand Théâtre
and the Théâtre des Capucins, operating
under the same header — are a major
national and international player when
it comes to producing and presenting

theater, dance, and opera in Luxembourg.
Built in the 1960s to mark the
millennium anniversary of Luxembourg
City, the Grand Théâtre has two
performance spaces with state of the art
facilities. With a seating capacity of up
to 1,000, the main auditorium can easily
host the most elaborate international

space with a more intimate capacity of
up to 300 seats, black box set up, modular
concept and refined technology. Over the

With their powerful infrastructure
and warm welcome, the Théâtres de la

European capital at the true height of its
cultural development.

theater”) is a Parisian theater that is open
to the world. Since it was founded in 1968,
it has presented theater, dance, and music

theater is located in the heart of Paris and
seats 1,000 spectators. It also incorporates
a smaller, more intimate space: the
24

Théâtre des Abbesses, at the foot of the
famous Butte Montmartre. Emmanuel
Demarcy-Mota has been Director of
Théâtre de la Ville since 2008.
This space is home to up-and-coming
and famous artists, and gives exposure to
new work, attracting an audience that is
varied in age, background, and tastes.
Nearly 60 years after the renowned
director Jean Vilar sought to make
theater accessible to the greatest
number of people possible, Théâtre de
la Ville embodies his idea of a great,
popular theater for today and tomorrow,
presenting the performing arts in all their
forms. With its international dimension,
it has a special place on the Paris theater
scene, attracting great companies from all
over the world to perform there.

the Ruhrfestspielhaus, but also in other
venues such as tents, industrial halls, pubs,
and bars in the city center, opening up new
spaces to new audiences.

The Edinburgh International Festival
gathers some of the world’s greatest
artists every August in the stunning city
of Edinburgh. For three exhilarating
weeks the city becomes an international
cultural epicenter with the finest creators
and performers from the worlds of
classical music, theater, opera, and dance
from around the globe offering intense,
personal, and exciting experiences to
those who come from Scotland, the UK,
and overseas. As a vibrant, innovative,
and energetic organization, involved
in commissioning and producing new
work from the very best artists working
internationally, while also nurturing grass
roots arts engagement on its doorstep,
the Festival contributes to many areas —
culture, economy, education, and society
— and enhances the lives of people not just
in Edinburgh and Scotland, but around the
world.
