The sounds of Thebes

Even more on the Heaney/Walcott/Le Gendre Burial at Thebes. First, in the London Times Andrew Billen captures some bantering conversation between Walcott and Heaney, old friends and accomplices in verse. And the UK Guardian offers a slideshow of images from rehearsals with a soundtrack of excerpts from Dominique Le Gendre's score. (You can hear the voice of Brian Green, the Trinidadian actor and singer who has the role of Creon.) The production opens tonight at the Globe Theatre in London.
