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.

ENO’s Akhnaten tickets are now available, don’t miss this mesmerising production or the rest of the ENO season.

The opera was great but the view was not. The reservation site said there was a clear view but didnt say a clear view of what exactly. Admittedly, these were cheap seats for this venue but I think it would be much more accurate to describe the view as limited. We could see half of the stage at best and virtually nothing of action higher up in the stage. Still glad we went though.

Customer M.T.17th February

Superb, fantastic, uplifting, brilliant ++++ Seen this and the previous 1986 production 2x each Hoping for more!!!!

laurence taylor17th February

A mesmerising production, held me fascinated throughout, probably not a traditional opera lovers cup of tea?

Customer16th February

Spoilt by far too much juggling. These became tedious in Act 11 and a bit ridiculous by Act 111. It detracted from the main protagonists and I felt that I'd missed important gestures and nuisances, by watching out for those bloody balls. The music, singing and costumes were superb!

Andrey Malyshev 16th February

It is great performance, excellent, marvellous

David. Johns13th February

Superb production complementing the music. A spectacle with significance. Although it was 3 hours long, it was enthralling throughout (tho’ wise to have each act shorter than the last). The singing was excellent but the narrator slightly disappointing. Some of the visuals will persist in my mind for ever. Altogether a memorable evening.

Very unique shows

I will never buy tickets through your site again - I paid 90£ per ticket and the ticket price listed on the physical ticket was 75£ when I picked it up at the venue. Don‘t buy from this site, buy from the venue itself to avoid hidden extra charges!
