"Phelim McDermott’s Olivier award-winning production of Philip Glass’s Akhnaten returns to the ENO, following sell-out runs at the London Coliseum.

Akhnaten is a mesmerising work whose text draws on ancient hymns, prayers and inscriptions sung in their original Egyptian, Hebrew and Akkadian. The opera’s unique mood transports audiences to this ancient world through Glass’s music (conducted by the returning Karen Kamensek) that combines his characteristic, minimalist voice with stylised movement, choreographed juggling and breathtaking costumes to visualise the rhythms of his score."
