MusicSales Composer Philip Glass’s Satyagraha Returns to The English National Opera

MusicSales Composer Philip Glass’s Satyagraha Returns to The English National Opera

Satyagraha is composer Philip Glass’s meditation on Gandhi’s early years in South Africa, tracing the progress of his concept of non-violent protest as a positive force for change.

First staged in 2007, Phelim McDermott’s highly acclaimed, spectacularly theatrical production is a visual feast.

Glass’s use of repetitive musical structures ‘minimalism’creates a mesmerising soundscape, quite unlike traditional operas


Following the Olivier Award-winning run of Akhnaten in 2016, McDermott is reunited with Glass-specialist conductor Karen Kamensek. Distinguished British tenor Toby Spence sings Gandhi for the first time, and is joined by sopranos Charlotte Beament (Miss Schelesen) and Anna-Clare Monk (Mrs Naidoo).

See Satyagraha at the London Coliseum from 1 Feb – 27 Feb 2018
