In Traetta´s opera of 1772 drama and music are remarkably intertwined. Alongside Gluck´s reform operas Antigone stands for the departure from the rigid operatic forms. The libretto is based on Sophocles´ tragedy, though the originally hopeless conflict is resolved in a provocative happy-end: the protagonists take different decisions an evade their fate. Novoflot portrays the well-known myth as open rivalry. The hesitation of the characters in the predetermined plot, their comical and simultaneously tragic efforts to gain position is overlapped by the self-presentation of the singers in front of the audience.
