    Satyagraha Tickets

    Philip Glass’s opera about Gandhi’s early years in South Africa opens at the London Coliseum in 2021. Audiences will experience a unique insight into the man’s politics, and how his belief in peaceful protest sparked a movement for change.

    A spectacular tribute to Gandhi’s legacy

    Political and social figure Mahatma Gandhi’s life and influence are explored in an incredible opera by Philip Glass.

    Starting with Gandhi’s early years in South Africa, the opera assesses how one man’s beliefs in nonviolent protest led to positive social change. With his message triggering anti-colonial protests across India and further inspiring civil rights movements across the world, Satyagraha tickets offer a fascinating, creative insight into an iconic figure.

    With a repetitive, minimalist musical structure from Philip Glass, this new staging of Satyagraha, a co-production between the English National Opera and Metropolitan Opera, is conducted by Carolyn Kuan and follows Phelim McDermott’s acclaimed 2007 direction.

    Casting includes Sean Panikkar as Gandhi, a role he performed to critical acclaim in Los Angeles Opera’s 2018 production.

    Experience an immersive retrospective of one of the most famous figures in modern history; Satyagraha opens at the London Coliseum on 14 October 2021.
