PLOT

Oedipus, the stranger who defeated the Sphinx ten years earlier, reigns in Thebes, as husband of Jocasta and father of 4 children. Led by a priest, his subjects ask him for help against the plague devastating the city.

Oedipus initially seeks the cause indicated by the oracle, the murderer of the previous king, Laius; then he starts searching for his own identity, which a messenger reveals to be different from the one he believed. A cross investigation eventually leads to the truth. Oedipus is the son of Laius, he has unknowingly killed his father, married his mother and generated 4 son-brothers.
