Philip Glass – Akhnaten—Met Premiere
Star countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo headlines as the revolutionary Pharaoh who
transformed ancient Egypt.
Director Phelim McDermott, whose productions include the hugely successful Satyagraha by
Philip Glass, returns to the Met to bring this contemporary production to life, with a virtuosic
company and dramatic staging that features acrobatics and juggling.
The striking soprano J’Nai Bridges makes her Met debut as Nefertiti with Karen Kamensek
conducting Glass’s ritualistic and hypnotic score.
Tickets £18, Concessions £17
