Philip Glass’ Egyptian epic returns

Be transported to Ancient Egypt with the English National Opera, as composer Philip Glass’ mesmerising Akhnaten returns to the London Coliseum.

Composer Glass’ Akhnaten opera tells the story of the Pharaoh Akhnaten, who was the first Ancient Egyptian leader to move from worshipping multiple gods to just one - the Sun. This dazzling opera tells his story with inspiration from ancient hymns, prayers and inscriptions, which are sung in their original Hebrew, Egyptian and Akkadian.

Director Phelim McDermott’s (ENO: Satyagraha; Così fan tutte) production of Akhnaten is hugely acclaimed, and has previously played the London Coliseum to sold-out audiences. Glass’ distinctive music, in a minimalist style, is conducted by Karen Kamensek in this co-production with LA Opera and Improbable.

The Akhnaten London cast includes Anthony Roth Costanzo (returning to the title role), Crystal E. Williams as Nefertiti, Haegee Lee as Queen Tye, Keel Watson as Aye and Zachary James as Scribe.

Book Akhnaten tickets and experience the sun god’s spectacular return to London.

What a stunning opera by Phillip Glass. Its beautiful to look at and the costumes were amazing. Its super slow motion in parts but you feel rewarded by the end. Two intervals helped as it was a long show

Wonderful spectacle. Clever set design - several points where one didn't know which part of the stage to watch. Wonderful singing of course.
