Satyagraha Scene-By-Scene

Posted on: October 19, 2018

Sean Panikkar, who plays the role of Gandhi in LA Opera’s production of Satyagraha, takes us through a scene-by-scene description of the opera. Satyagraha focuses on the years Gandhi spent in South Africa from 1893 to 1914. The opera unfolds thematically rather than chronologically, in depicting the development of Gandhi’s philosophy of satyagraha, and is sung in Sanskrit.
