The much anticipated Opera: SATYAGRAYA by the Los Angeles Opera (about the early life of Ghandi) opens October 20th – November 11th
The company premiere of a mesmerizing Philip Glass masterpiece, staged by the visionary director of Akhnaten
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. Satyagraha (Sanskrit for “truth force”) is inspired by Gandhi’s early years in South Africa, where he developed a radical new idea of 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.
"An unmissable music theatre experience." – The Guardian
