* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Antigone. DoomedMoralVictor who just wanted peace for her brother, or vain DeathSeeker who cared more about the legend she'd become by rebelling and then becoming a martyr?
** Alternatively, her disillusionment with life in the Anouilh play could be symptomatic of depression.
** Creon. Stubborn KnightTemplar who wanted the best for his city, or crazed tyrant who only cared for the security of his own power?
* MisaimedFandom: The Vichy government allowed the modern version of this play to be performed simply because they thought that Creon was a model leader. [[ThoseWackyNazis Hardly surprising.]]
* NamesTheSame: No, Creon's wife is not the same Eurydice whom Orpheus loved and tried to rescue from the Underworld.
** Nor is Creon the same man as the guy from {{Euripides}}' ''Theatre/{{Medea}}''--that guy was the king of Corinth, not Thebes.
* ValuesDissonance: Modern audiences cannot grasp Antigone's sense of honour and why the burial ritual is so important -- more important than preserving life.
