as part of Metropolitan Opera Live
Fathom Events and the Metropolitan Opera present a broadcast of Philip Glass’s Akhnaten, live in select cinemas nationwide on Saturday, November 23.
Countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo headlines American composer Philip Glass’s transcendent contemporary creation, with Karen Kamensek conducting. Phelim McDermott’s stunning production employs a virtuosic company of acrobats and jugglers to conjure a mystical reimagining of ancient Egypt. 3 hrs, 40 min.
"Spellbinding! Of Philip Glass’s many, many operas — 30 or so, depending on how you count — AKHNATEN may be the most ritualistic and mystical." - New York Times
"A triumph!" - Observer
"Akhnaten is easily one of the finest things to ever appear at the Met. The intense beauty of the production was its own thrill." - New York Classical Review
