One of the biggest hits of the Met Opera’s 2019–20 season, Philip Glass’s Akhnaten is the third installment in the composer’s Portrait Trilogy focused on revolutionary figures from world history. Starring as the ancient Egyptian pharaoh who attempted to radically alter his society, countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo headlines this performance from the Live in HD series.

In her Met-debut season, Karen Kamensek conducts the hypnotic score, leading a cast that also features soprano Dísella Lárusdóttir as Queen Tye, mezzo-soprano J’Nai Bridges as Nefertiti, and bass Zachary James as Amenhotep I. Phelim McDermott’s endlessly inventive production fills the Met stage with breathtaking visuals, including virtuosic pattern-juggling routines by Gandini Juggling.

History

Philip Glass's Akhnaten

Visionary American composer Philip Glass’s mesmerizing look at ancient Egypt, Akhnaten explores the life and influence of the young pharaoh who sought to reform centuries-old religious and social orders.

The opera’s score is lyrical, elegiac, and a powerful example of the effectiveness of its composer’s minimalist approach.

Outstanding

When Opera works - it really works !! - I have seen this production in London live at ENO, and the Met production steamed live to my local cinema in Durham. Mesmerising, from the first breath of the music - the fanatical singing - outstanding presence of the principle singers - the simple yet complex production - opera rarely gets better than this.
