Following the extraordinary artistic triumphs of Einstein on the Beach and Akhnaten, LA Opera completes the Philip Glass "portrait" trilogy about powerful personalities who changed the world.
"Exquisite... a must-see magnificent production"
Satyagraha (Sanskrit for “truth force”) is inspired by Gandhi’s early years in South Africa, where he developed his groundbreaking ideas about nonviolent political resistance. A visually stunning presentation—starring fast-rising tenor Sean Panikkar as Gandhi—links past, present and future to illuminate a powerful meditation on the lasting effects of human goodness.
Please note: Satyagraha does not use supertitles, but features minimal projected English translation projected onto the stage.
An unmissable music theatre experience.
Approximate running time: three hours, 25 minutes, including two intermissions.
A co-production of the Metropolitan Opera and English National Opera, in collaboration with Improbable.
