About Akhnaten

Philip Glass’s mesmerizing modern masterpiece—a smash-hit in its 2019 company-premiere run—returns in Phelim McDermott’s unforgettable production, which brings ancient Egypt to vivid life with striking stage tableaux and a troupe of jugglers. Countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo reprises his celebrated turn as the revolutionary pharaoh Akhnaten, with mezzo-soprano Rihab Chaieb as his wife and queen, Nefertiti. Once again at the helm is conductor Karen Kamensek, a noted master of Glass’s music.

Long, but thoroughly bewitching, Mesmerizing joy to watch

See it if Countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo repeats breathtaking Akhnaten role from 2019/2020 season. Egypt's transformative 1351–1334 BCE god-king.

Don’t see it if You dislike Philip Glass (hard to imagine). His work is unlike that of any other contemporary opera composer. It just elevates and shines.

Riveting, Masterful, Great staging, Exquisite

See it if Stunning, gorgeous piece. Wish all opera were like this — modern, updated, transcendent. Meditative. Great, dark score.

Don’t see it if You want traditional, fussy opera. This isn’t that.
