After the huge success of its London premiere in 2007 and at the Metropolitan Opera, New York the following year, Philip Glass's operatic masterpiece returns to ENO. It's a mesmerising musical meditation on Mahatama Gandhi's early years in South Africa and his spiritual progress towards the concept of nonviolent protest.
Among the most visually spectacular productions for decades, Satyagraha is instilled with theatrical flair by the award winning director / designer partnership of Improbable's Phelim McDermott and Julian Crouch, and is performed in Sanskrit.
Returning to the roles they created in 2007 and reprised in 2009 are Alan Oke as Gandhi and Janis Kellly as Mrs Naidoo. Satyagraha is conducted by Stuart Stratford.
