Philip Glass's Akhnaten / English National Opera
One man's ideas can change the course of history. But at what cost? Directed by Phelim McDermott, this extraordinary work has not been seen in London for 30 years. Live at the London Coliseum until Friday 18 March. Book your seat today: https://goo.gl/MroPwN About Akhnaten: Divine ruler of Egypt, husband to Nefertiti, father of a new religion. Akhnaten decrees that the sun god rules supreme, and the old gods must be banished from their temples. But instead, his people turn upon their Pharaoh as a traitor. Akhnaten must die. Will his new faith live on? Watching Akhnaten is a thought-provoking, absorbing experience. This extraordinary work has not been seen in London for 30 years and forms the last of Philip Glass’s trilogy of ‘portrait’ operas in which he looks at figures from the fields of science (Einstein), politics (Gandhi) and religion (Akhnaten). This mesmerising opera uses texts drawn from ancient hymns, prayers, letters and inscriptions sung in their original Egyptian, Hebrew and Akkadian. ENO’s new production is directed by Improbable theatre company’s Phelim McDermott and follows his spectacular stagings of Glass’s Satyagraha and The Perfect American. Countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo sings the title role, while conductor Karen Kamensek, a specialist in Glass’s music, makes her ENO debut.
