About

Satyagraha is composer Philip Glass's meditation on Gandhi's early years in South Africa, tracing the progress of his concept of non-violent protest as a positive force for change. First staged in 2007, Phelim McDermott's highly acclaimed, spectacularly theatrical production is a visual feast. Glass's use of repetitive musical structures - 'minimalism'- creates a mesmerising soundscape, quite unlike traditional operas. Following the Olivier Award-winning run of Akhnaten in 2016, McDermott is reunited with Glass-specialist conductor Karen Kamensek. Distinguished British tenor Toby Spence sings Gandhi for the first time, and is joined by sopranos Charlotte Beament (Miss Schelesen) and Anna-Clare Monk (Mrs Naidoo).
