Antigone, daughter of Oedipus, the late king of Thebes, in defiance of Creon who
rules in his stead, resolves to bury her brother Polyneices, slain in his attack on
Thebes. She is caught in the act by Creon's watchmen and brought before the
king. She justifies her action, asserting that she was bound to obey the eternal
laws of right and wrong in spite of any human ordinance. Creon, unrelenting,
condemns her to be immured in a rock-hewn chamber. His son Haemon, to
whom Antigone is betrothed, pleads in vain for her life and threatens to die with
her. Warned by the seer Teiresias Creon repents him and hurries to release
Antigone from her rocky prison. But he is too late: he finds lying side by side
Antigone who had hanged herself and Haemon who also has perished by his
own hand. Returning to the palace he sees within the dead body of his queen
who on learning of her son's death has stabbed herself to the heart.
