2013 STAGE: THEATER: OEDIPUS REX, in October 2010, Classical Greek Theater

You have heard about Oedipus Rex.
Now you can watch it on the virtual stage.
"Struggle with us. “Oedipus Rex” was presented  on October 2, 3, 9,10, 16 and 17 at the new home of the Avatar Repertory Theater in Second Life. The acting company includes Joff Fassnacht, MadameThespian Underhill, Thundergas Menges, Em Jannings, Rowan Shamroy and Kayden Oconnell."

The people of Avatar Repertory Theater have worked over the available scripts and produced an adaptation of Oedipus Rex specifically for Second Life.  Stage design and music score are all original work done specifically for Second Life.
If you saw Oedipus Rex in college, you probably have not seen it since.  If you have only read it,  you can see what it looks like to some others.  And, yes, you get 30 snob credits just for attending.  But if you step around the snob appeal, you will see a story of raw emotion that could have come from one of today's crime dramas.
