Akhnaten, 2019, Rose Design

Phelim McDermott’s Olivier Award-winning production of Akhnaten returns to ENO for its first revival in 2019, following its sell-out run in 2016. He was reunited with Glass specialist Karen Kamensek who conducted the composer’s mesmerising score.
Exploring the life and religious convictions of the Egyptian pharaoh, Akhnaten forms the last of Glass’s trilogy of ‘portrait’ operas in which he explores the lives of figures in the fields of science (Einstein), politics (Gandhi) and religion (Akhnaten).
