Akhnaten tickets are now available! Don’t miss the first revival of this stunning opera since its 2016 sell-out run!
Philip Glass’s incredible work based on the life of the ancient Pharaoh pulls from ancient hymns, prayers and inscriptions sung in their original Egyptian, Hebrew and Akkadian. The music that combines the characteristic minimalist voice of Glass will transport you back to the ancient world with stylised movement and choreographed juggling to help make the rhythms of his score come to life.
Conducted by Philip Glass specialist Karen Kamensek on the heels of last season’s Satyagraha revival, Akhnaten brings back many of the original stars of the production. Anthony Roth Costanzo returns to ENO in the title role, as do Rebecca Bottone, singing Queen Tye, James Cleverton, Colin Judson and Zachary James. New to the production is Harewood Artist Katie Stevenson as Nefertiti and the bass-baritone Keel Watson as Aye.
