Akhnaten, 1987, Programme Cover

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). After its UK premiere in 1985 this ENO production was revived in 1987 with David Freeman directing and this print is taken from the programme from that run.
