Met Encore


Director Phelim McDermott tackles another one of Philip Glass’s masterpieces, following the now-legendary Met staging of Satyagraha. Olivier Award for Best New Opera Production.


Star countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo is the title pharaoh, the revolutionary ruler who transformed ancient Egypt, with the striking mezzo-soprano J’Nai Bridges in her Met debut as his wife, Nefertiti. To match the opera’s hypnotic, ritualistic music, McDermott has created an arresting vision that includes a virtuosic company of acrobats and jugglers. Karen Kamensek conducts in her Met debut. This production was originally created by English National Opera and LA Opera. 210m approx inc 2 intervals. Act I – 49m; Intermission – 35m; Act II - 50m; Intermission - 35m; Act III  - 42m.


Tickets £20 (Friends/Students £17.50)
